(Seattle) Continuing to grow its bankruptcy and creditors’ rights practice, Rimon Law has added Magdalena Bragun as Counsel in its Seattle office.
Ms. Bragun joins Rimon from a boutique law firm Summac Law PLLC. She previously worked as a litigator at Lane Powell PC.
Ms. Bragun represents businesses and individuals in creditors’ rights matters, avoidance litigation and other adversary proceedings in bankruptcy courts, as well as international and domestic corporate matters. She has worked with secured and unsecured creditors, as well as receivers, creditors’ committees and technology startups on avoidance actions, assumption and assignment obligations, cross-border chapter 15 issues, non-disclosure agreements, and other types of contracts.
“Restructuring is a critical practice for our clients and Magdalena has developed a great reputation in representing clients in challenging creditors’ rights and bankruptcy proceedings,” said Michael Moradzadeh, CEO of Rimon.
In addition to her creditors’ rights work, Ms. Bragun has been advising Polish businesses and entrepreneurs on entering the U.S. marketplace, as well as providing litigation guidance in the U.S. As a native of Poland, she joined Rimon with a vision to promote Polish-American entrepreneurship and provide legal services tailored to support Polish companies in their expansion into the U.S. Her goal is to help such companies accelerate their growth and thrive in the U.S. economy, as well as assist American investors with their transactions in Poland.
Ms. Bragun’s Polish background coupled with Rimon’s broad expertise in fields like intellectual property protection, international tax, data protection, securities, and commercial litigation, makes Rimon uniquely positioned to successfully assist Polish companies with their expansion into the U.S. market. Before immigrating to the U.S., Ms. Bragun studied Polish law at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland, and served as a law clerk at the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw, Poland, where she worked on policy issues and assisted in drafting legal opinions on the conformity of Polish laws with those of the European Union.
Rimon’s international corporate practice group has been a particular source of strength. The firm has attorneys who regularly manage transactions in Canada, Latin America, the U.K., Israel, Europe, and China. Adding Ms. Bragun to the firm’s international team enables Rimon to build new bridges between Polish and American enterprises and shows Rimon’s continued commitment to serving its Central and Eastern European clients.
Ms. Bragun believes in advocating both for her clients and for her community. She was the author of a noted law review article advocating for a change of immigration regulations prohibiting H-4 visa holders from working in the U.S. Ms. Bragun’s experience and her law review article were featured in The Seattle Times article describing the newly enacted immigration rule.
Rimon Law, which has 17 offices internationally, has twice been recognized by the Financial Times as one of North America's most innovative law firms. The firm’s owners were both named ‘Legal Rebels’ by the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal and have been speakers at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools on innovations in the practice of law.
At Rimon, Ms. Bragun joins an expanding team in Seattle, including recent addition Emma Larson.
Ms. Bragun received her J.D., summa cum laude, from Seattle University School of Law and her B.Sc. from the School of Banking in Poznan, Poland.
