Mr. Bachrach has spent his entire professional life representing surety companies in working out solutions and resolving difficult problems arising from the sureties’ contract and commercial surety bonds that have been provided on behalf of the sureties’ principals to obligees and claimants to support the principal’s performance of its underlying obligations under contractual agreements and various statutes. His work, both outside and inside the bankruptcy arena, has involved the investigation of surety claims and defenses, working out performance bond, payment bond and commercial surety bond claim solutions, and enforcing the sureties’ indemnity, salvage and subrogation rights to be repaid any losses incurred under the bonds.
Mr. Bachrach was born in and grew up in Maine, and loves swimming in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Maine. As a result of his Maine upbringing, he played competitive ice hockey until he was 57 years old. At some point in his legal career, he became a better surety lawyer than golfer or hockey player.
