Regional law firm, Shatz, Schwartz & Fentin, P.C., serving clients throughout western New England and New York as well as nationally and internationally, today announced that shareholder David K. Webber is now licensed to practice in the state of Connecticut, in addition to Massachusetts.
“It comes down to customer service and convenience,” said Attorney Webber. “Being so close to the state line, and having so many clients who live in Mass. and work in Conn. or vice versa, this allows for more flexibility.”
Webber, a resident of Granby, concentrates his practice in the areas of closely held business, corporate law, real estate, trusts and estates, and bankruptcy. He has been selected a Super Lawyers Rising Star, in the field of closely held business, yearly since 2012. Highlights of his corporate work include assisting startups and entrepreneurs, representation of sellers in stock and asset sales, and negotiation and drafting of contracts of all kinds. He has extensive experience in seller-side due diligence and coordination of complex transactions including asset sales, bankruptcy sales, and real estate. He frequently works with high-net-worth clients and their advisors in estate planning and probate matters.
Webber holds a J.D. from the Western New England University School of Law, where he interned with Justice Francis X. Spina at the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and served as note editor of the Western New England Law Review. In addition, he holds a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Massachusetts, where he graduated cum laude. He is admitted to practice before the Connecticut Bar, the Massachusetts Bar, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the Bureau of Veterans Affairs.
