Offering small-business owners vital information about bankruptcy issues is just part of what Attorney Steven Weiss does, but it is an important part, as his inclusion in a new book, Inside the Minds: Representing Small Businesses in Bankruptcy, from Thomson Reuters’ Aspatore Books makes.
Attorney Weiss, Shareholder and Chair of the Bankruptcy Department of Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin, P.C. in Springfield and Northampton, MA, wrote the chapter “Advising Small Business Clients About Chapter 11,” which includes critical bankruptcy information, guidance and a checklist.
The Aspatore legal volume provides an authoritative insider’s perspective on best practices for counseling small businesses in financial trouble. Featuring articles written by experienced bankruptcy partners from around the country, the book guides the reader through the complexities of understanding what constitutes a small business and the problems they face in today’s economic climate. Whether the answer lies in restructuring, liquidating, or other non-bankruptcy options, top lawyers analyze how to identify and achieve the best possible outcome for a small business client.
Attorney Steven Weiss concentrates his practice in the areas of commercial and consumer bankruptcy, reorganization and litigation. He supervises the firm’s bankruptcy, reorganization and workout practice, and represents creditors, debtors, and others in both commercial and consumer bankruptcy cases throughout Massachusetts. Weiss has been a member of the private panel of Chapter 7 Trustees for the District of Massachusetts since 1987, and also serves as a Chapter 11 Trustee.
