About Robert Michaelson
I have more than 35 years of experience as a bankruptcy, creditors' rights and restructuring attorney. My practice includes general commercial litigation in both the state and federal courts as well as corporate matters. Over my career I have had significant involvement in some of the largest and most complex bankruptcy proceedings in the United States representing debtors, creditors, trustees and creditors' committees. My clients include Fortune 500 companies as well as small and medium sized businesses and individuals.
In addition, I have served as and actively serve as a post-confirmation litigation trustee. I was the trustee in In re Appleseed’s Intermediate Holdings, Inc. in the District of Delaware where, through my direct efforts, an estate that initially appeared to be insolvent yielded a dividend to unsecured creditors of approximately 40%. I am presently the post-confirmation litigation trustee in In re International Shipholding Corporation in the Southern District of New York and In re Federation Employment and Guidance Service, Inc. in the Eastern District of New York.
I began my career as the law clerk to the late Honorable Conrad B. Duberstein, Chief Judge of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York and later became a partner with a prestigious Am Law 100 law firm. More recently, I formed Rich Michaelson Magaliff, LLP with longstanding professional colleagues who share my passion for providing practical advice and superior representation at rates that are notably lower than those charged by the so-called “big firms”. In just its first year of operation, the firm was recognized in the annual U.S. News - Best Lawyers survey as one the best bankruptcy and creditors rights firms in the United States, large or small.
I am the author of numerous articles and have lectured on a number of bankruptcy and related topics and enjoy a peer rating of AV from Martin-Hubbell, the highest ranking for legal skill and professional ethics.

Post-confirmation liquidation and litigation trusts are tools used to resolve certain claims and issues in a Chapter 11 case. These trusts allowed debtors to immediately emerge from bankruptcy. Methods in handling large-scale litigation matters and claims resolution process were also made possible by these trusts.
