Since the commencement of his practice, Mr. Neiwirth has placed great emphasis on the bankruptcy law, debtor/creditor relations, transactions and real estate, and the impact and effect that the bankruptcy law can have upon an individual's or a corporation's business transactions and relationships with its creditors and in its daily business activities. This would include the evaluation of the appropriate way for individuals investing or purchasing businesses or assets to protect their assets in excess of that amount which is pledged to a business endeavor or structure.
Mr. Neiwirth's experience in the field of bankruptcy law and debtor/creditor relations has allowed him to develop an excellent understanding of the interrelationships of various issues and aspects of business and corporate law, lien perfection, contract drafting and evaluation, collateral security interests and real estate, as well as transactions between parties and/or entities, with an eye towards the bankruptcy law which might permit an "undoing" of the various transactions.
Mr. Neiwirth also handles commercial and residential real estate purchase and sale transactions and financing transactions (from negotiating and drafting the contract through closing). Mr. Neiwirth has been an agent/member of Attorney’s Title Insurance Fund/Attorney’s Title Fund Services handling closings, real estate transactions and issuing Title Insurance since 1986.
