Michael Rosow

Maslon LLP has announced the addition of Financial Services attorney Michael Rosow to the firm’s partnership. Rosow brings two decades of experience representing clients, including national financial institutions, in loan workouts, creditor remedies, and bankruptcy; financial services litigation; and real estate litigation.

Rosow handles highly complex cases that require his advocacy in the courtroom, as well as completing transactional work in partnership with banks and other financial institutions to ensure they accomplish their business goals. He has guided workout professionals to implement collections processes and determining how best to enforce their rights as creditors. He also works on the collection of unsecured notes, the enforcement of secured loans, and the acquisition of assets of distressed companies.

Rosow was named an Attorney of the Year by Minnesota Lawyer in 2020, and he has been recognized in Minnesota Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America. He earned his law degree, magna cum laude, from the University of Minnesota.


Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome Heidi J. Nau to the Minneapolis office as counsel in the Real Estate Department.

Nau works with clients to find collaborative solutions that drive real estate transactions to closing. She focuses her practice on representing mortgage lenders in commercial real estate transactions with agency financing, particularly clients who service and originate loans through Fannie Mae. She also has experience representing clients in regard to HUD interest rate reductions and refinancings, lease negotiations, homeowners associations, foreclosures and creditors’ remedies.

Nau is a member of Minnesota Commercial Real Estate Women, an organization dedicated to advancing women in the real estate industry, as well as the Minnesota State Bar Association and Hennepin County Bar Association. She also volunteers with the Twin Cities food bank Second Harvest.

She earned her J.D. from Hamline University School of Law and B.A., magna cum laude, from Buena Vista University.

Before Fox, Nau was a shareholder at Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A.
