Irve J. Goldman has practiced in the areas of bankruptcy law and commercial litigation for more than 30 years, and serves as chair of Pullman & Comley's Bankruptcy, Creditors' Rights and Financial Restructuring practice. In 1993, Irve was the first attorney in Connecticut to become a certified specialist in business bankruptcy and has represented a diversity of interests in bankruptcy proceedings, including companies reorganizing under Chapter 11, secured creditors, equipment lessors, franchisees, landlords and other creditor groups and asset purchasers in 363 sales.

He has represented companies in reorganization proceedings ranging in size from large retail businesses to smaller-sized concerns such as a marina in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, a regional hardware chain, vintage car company and a cross section of other businesses and individuals. He also has served as a Chapter 11 Trustee, as well as represented Chapter 11 trustees in various bankruptcy cases.

A frequent author on topical bankruptcy issues, Irve has published articles in the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Journal dealing with standing issues in bankruptcy, prejudgment asset-freeze injunctions and executory contracts; in the Connecticut Bar Journal on the status of lien stripping under bankruptcy law; and in the Quinnipiac Law Review’s annual summary of decisions from the Second Circuit.

In addition to his bankruptcy experience, Irve has handled a wide variety of commercial disputes in both state and federal court, including actions involving civil RICO, breach of fiduciary duty, other business torts and debtor-creditor issues.
