Attorney Robert B. Weiss Joins Dickinson Wright’s Troy Office as Of Counsel

TROY, Mich., April 7, 2020 – Dickinson Wright PLLC is pleased to announce that Attorney Robert B. Weiss has joined the firm’s Troy office as Of Counsel.

“I’m excited to be joining Dickinson Wright and their nationally-recognized automotive and insolvency/restructuring practices,” says Robert. “Over my career, I’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with many of my colleagues at Dickinson Wright and look forward to working with them and our clients, especially in the automotive industry, to navigate the evolving economic circumstances in the months ahead.”

“I have worked side-by-side with Bob for over 20 years and have always had a tremendous amount of respect for him. Bob is truly one of the most respected attorneys in the automotive and restructuring space,” says James Plemmons, Deputy CEO of Lateral Partner Recruitment. “We are very fortunate that Bob decided to continue his illustrious career with Dickinson Wright as he is a great addition to our team and will provide tremendous support to our practice and clients.”

Robert Weiss’ over thirty years’ experience advising automotive OEMs and their suppliers as outside counsel and, most recently, as General Counsel of Joyson Safety Systems, a multinational Tier 1 supplier, gives him dual perspective and a breadth of experience in all aspects of automotive supply chain representation. He has advised his clients on a wide range of complex and, at times, unique legal matters. Mr. Weiss is one of the pioneers in the development and refinement of supply chain protection in the automotive, manufacturing and related industries, and in collaboration with his colleagues, helped establish the protocol and refine processes used in dealing with critical, single-source suppliers in the “just in time inventory” context, which has since become the industry standard.

Mr. Weiss previously headed the commercial, restructuring, and bankruptcy practice of a large Midwestern law firm. He has represented manufacturers in complex commercial transactions, the structuring and negotiating of complex commercial supply contracts, sensitive internal investigations, and commercial litigation. As the practice lead, Mr. Weiss oversaw and actively represented clients in the events leading up to the 2009 financial crisis and was the lead lawyer of one of three law firms retained to represent General Motors Corporation in its Chapter 11 case.

Mr. Weiss has also overseen and has extensive experience with multiple restructurings of companies through pre-packaged arrangements, out-of-court restructurings, and Chapter 11 proceedings. He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and has been recognized by Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers. Mr. Weiss received his B.A. from Yeshiva University and his J.D. from Case Western Reserve University.
