By: Bodman PLC

06/17/16

Bodman PLC attorney Marc Bakst, of the firm’s Detroit office, has been elected to the Michigan Israel Business Bridge Board of Directors for a three-year term ending in 2019.

The Michigan Israel Business Bridge, founded in 2007, works to bridge the international gap between Michigan and Israel. The Bridge began as an effort to close the gap between Michigan’s renowned base of manufacturing, human resources, and infrastructure, and Israel’s technological workforce and desire to expand its manufacturing, development and distribution in North America, forming a beneficial partnership. Today, MIBB continues to strengthen the bonds between the countries through networking events to showcase current Israeli innovation like 3D printing, smart vehicles and the newest medical devices.
The Bridge has formed ongoing partnerships with the Michigan Economic Developments Corporation, the Israel Economic Mission based in Chicago and the Export Institute in Israel.

Bakst, a member of Bodman’s Banking Practice Group, represents clients in the areas of creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, reorganization and insolvency. He regularly represents secured and unsecured creditors, debtors, trustees and creditors’ committees in loan workout and other negotiations, and in state and federal courts. Mr. Bakst is listed in The Best Lawyers in America 2016 under Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law and Litigation-Bankruptcy, and in Michigan Super Lawyers 2007-2015 under Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights. He is listed as a 2016 "Top Lawyer" by DBusiness magazine.
