Pashman Stein strengthens bankruptcy, restructuring practice with the addition of Weiss

Pashman Stein Walder Hayden on Friday said it has strengthened its Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Creditors’ Rights practice with the addition of John Weiss to its Holmdel office.

Weiss came on board as partner and chair, effective Feb. 23.

“I am thrilled to welcome John to our firm,” firm Chair and Managing Partner Michael Stein said. “Establishing a bankruptcy and reorganization practice has been part of our strategic growth plan to provide comprehensive counsel to our clients. 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.”

Weiss has more than 20 years of experience serving as a business partner to his clients across the country, providing strategic counsel in complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and helping them navigate restructuring and bankruptcy transactions and litigation.

He also has extensive national experience representing defendants in avoidance actions, as well as advising professional service firms (such as accounting firms, financial advisory firms and investment banks) on bankruptcy retention and fee-related issues, including counseling such firms as to related policies and procedures, risk mitigation and forms and documentation, and appearing in court on their behalf, when necessary.

“I am excited to join Pashman Stein and build a sophisticated bankruptcy and restructuring practice that provides the high-quality service our clients expect, but in a more cost-effective manner. I look forward to being part of a team known for its excellent litigation platform, advocacy and client service, and to collaborating across practice areas to support the needs of clients in all aspects of their businesses, including when faced with bankruptcy and restructuring issues,” Weiss said.
