Mr. Weisberg, a Firm shareholder, is a business and personal legal adviser who counsels clients on a wide range of legal issues. He serves as general counsel to a regional federal savings bank. He regularly represents closely held and mid-size companies in general business counseling, litigation, commercial leasing, mergers and acquisitions, as well as in real estate transactions, financing, joint ventures and corporate restructurings. His business clients run the gamut from the bank, physician and dental practice groups, building contractors and engineering firms, to marina and commercial property owners and retail merchants. Mr. Weisberg has litigated several hundred commercial disputes in the Maryland Circuit and District Courts, Federal District Court, and U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, and has appeared before the Maryland Court of Appeals and Court of Special Appeals. He served for ten years as a settlement conference officer for the Alternative Dispute Resolution efforts of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County.
Mr. Weisberg has also developed a strong concentration in the law of wills and trusts and the administration of estates. In that practice he helps a wide variety of clients craft comprehensive estate plans taking into account the client's individual situation and wealth transfer wishes.
