Andrew Foreman has joined the Chicago law firm Butler Rubin Saltarelli & Boyd LLP as an associate, concentrating his practice in complex commercial litigation.

Most recently, Foreman — a Belfast native — was an associate at Daley Mohan Groble. He had also been an associate in the Chicago office of Latham & Watkins.

Foreman served as a judicial intern for the Hon. Sonia M. Sotomayor of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (now a member of the U.S. Supreme Court) while in law school. Prior to law school, Foreman worked as litigation paralegal in the New York office of Cahill Gordon & Reindel.

A 2001 magna cum laude graduate of Brown University, Foreman earned his law degree at The University of Chicago Law School in 2008, where he was the managing editor of The University of Chicago Legal Forum.

Foreman was born in Belfast and lived there his entire childhood until he went to college. He attended Belfast Area High School. Andy’s parents still live in Belfast — his dad is John Slaughter, the dentist, and his mom is Nancy Foreman. Foreman is proud to be from Belfast, and said that for a city of 6,500 people, it’s a pretty amazing place.

Foreman used to sing in a group in Belfast called Voicebox. He was a Boy Scout in Troop 37. He attended the United Methodist Church when he was young, then later Midcoast Christian Fellowship. He played pipe organ and substituted at various churches around Belfast while he was in high school and when he was home during college.

Formed in 1980, Chicago-based Butler Rubin assists clients nationally and internationally in the core practice areas of reinsurance and complex business disputes, including antitrust, competition law and opt-out antitrust litigation; class actions; defense of corporate directors and officers; mortgage insurance; credit insurance; insolvency; creditors’ rights; and products liability and mass tort matters.
