Brent Weisenberg joined Lowenstein Sandler as senior counsel in the firm’s bankruptcy, financial reorganization and creditors’ rights department, the firm announced Monday.
Weisenberg focuses on advising businesses and their stakeholder constituencies during periods of financial challenge and special situations, including in the negotiation and implementation of complex commercial transactions, the acquisition and disposition of distressed assets, and the prosecution and defense of commercial litigation.
Weisenberg’s experience includes counseling official and unofficial committees across industries that include retail, real estate, construction, hospitality, telecommunications, manufacturing and technology.
He also has experience in the wind-down of private equity and hedge fund vehicles, having previously served as general counsel to the Platinum Partners family of hedge funds, where he worked extensively with a court-appointed receiver’s outside counsel and financial advisors, as well as with Platinum’s portfolio managers, to unwind a fund valued at more than $500 million.
“Having worked extensively with members of the Lowenstein team in the past, I am thrilled to now become a part of their sophisticated bankruptcy practice. I look forward to joining forces so that I can assist the team in continuing to develop innovative solutions to the many urgent matters facing businesses during these uncertain times,” Weisenberg said in a prepared statement.
Lowenstein’s bankruptcy, financial reorganization and creditors’ rights group was recognized by the Wall Street Journal last year as one of the country’s top 10 power players in large corporate bankruptcy matters.
