Profile
Clients involved in restructurings benefit from the insight and experience Morris Weiss has gained during a career spent in both private legal practice and in-house, as well as in leadership positions with financial services companies, manufacturers, and industrial companies. Today, Morris provides counsel to debtors, litigation trustees, creditors, creditors’ committees, bondholders, purchasers of assets, and other parties involved in bankruptcy cases in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, real estate, technology, and financial services. In addition, Morris has recently been appointed as chapter 11 trustee in an oil and gas case. Morris also provides counsel to parties involved in litigation matters.

Morris spent 12 years in the Business Finance and Restructuring Group of Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP (the last four as a partner) before leaving to serve as in-house counsel at public and private companies, including a commercial bank, and a brokerage firm. Later, Morris helped analyze distressed credits and then became an investment banker, serving as managing director at a boutique broker dealer that raised more than $1.3 billion in equity capital for various technology companies (including wireless spectrum) and for a winery. He served as Chief Restructuring Officer for a publicly traded company and on the boards of directors for a number of public and private companies. Morris currently serves on the board of directors of Talon International, Inc., a global apparel accessory company.

Before joining Waller, Morris was a partner with Taube Summers Harrison Taylor Meinzer Brown, LLP, a preeminent bankruptcy and civil litigation boutique firm in Austin, Tex.
