Andrew J. Abrams concentrates his practice in insolvency and creditors’ rights matters, commercial lending, commercial litigation, and general corporate law. Andrew has extensive experience representing regional and community banks in resolving distressed commercial real-estate loans, including loan portfolios acquired from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver for failed institutions. Andrew has handled numerous out-of-court workout and restructuring transactions and enforcement actions in bankruptcy, state and federal courts, including numerous commercial real estate foreclosure matters.

Experienced both in documenting loan transactions and as a commercial litigator, with substantial knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code, Andrew provides the full range of services for his lender clients. This has included preparing loan modification and forbearance agreements, assisting in the recovery of pledged collateral through commercial mortgage foreclosure proceedings (including defense of any counterclaims raising lender liability claims), deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure transactions, and personal property sales under the Uniform Commercial Code, and representing secured and unsecured creditors throughout all stages of bankruptcy court proceedings.

Andrew’s transactional practice includes representing banks in commercial loan documentation, creation and perfection of security interests in personal property as well as real estate collateral, loan closings, disposition of bank-owned real estate and troubled loan workouts. His extensive litigation and insolvency experience has informed his transactional and corporate practice, allowing him to prepare agreements and to structure transactions with a view to potential litigation challenges as well as to minimize bankruptcy risks.
