William C. Blasses Elevated to Member of Kerr Russell

January 11, 2019

Kerr Russell is pleased to announce that William C. Blasses has been selected to become a Member of the firm effective January 1, 2019.

Bill specializes in the areas of bankruptcy, restructuring, commercial litigation, and fraud investigation and litigation. Bill approaches each client with the mentality that complex problems require comprehensive solutions. To that end, Bill recognizes that resolving a commercial dispute or restructuring a client may require more than a court supervised legal process and that litigation may only result in a partial solution. Bill has substantial experience representing businesses and their owners, creditors, and trustees in commercial disputes, bankruptcy proceedings, adversary proceedings and appeals. Bill has experience representing business owners in state and federal courts as well as before administrative law judges.

 Bill has been named to the Michigan "Rising Star" list by Super Lawyers, a division of Thomson Reuters, in bankruptcy practice from 2013-2018, was recognized as a 2018 “Top Lawyer” in commercial litigation by DBusiness magazine, and was named to Michigan Lawyers Weekly's "Up & Coming Lawyers" in 2017.
