Pashman Stein Walder Hayden launched a bankruptcy, restructuring and creditors’ rights practice on Feb. 23 with the addition of partner John Weiss, who chairs the new group.
Establishing a bankruptcy and reorganization practice has been part of of the firm’s strategic growth plan, according to firm Chair and Managing Partner Michael Stein.
“Having an AM Law 100 lawyer of John’s caliber leading the practice will enhance the quality of service we provide to our clients and add further depth to the firm,” Stein said.
Weiss has more than two decades of experience providing counsel in complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and helping navigate restructuring and bankruptcy transactions and litigation. He has extensive national experience representing defendants in avoidance actions, and advising professional service firms on bankruptcy retention and fee-related issues.
Weiss said he was excited to “build a sophisticated bankruptcy and restructuring practice that provides the high-quality service our clients expect, but in a more cost-effective manner.”
