A Great Start for Waypoint

It’s been a busy week for Waypoint Law, PLLC.

On November 3, we launched.

The Nashville Post picked up the story.

Honestly, I was blown away by the huge positive response we received.  Here’s just a small sample of the encouragement we got this week.

Along with the excitement, I tried to get into the flow of the new business this week.  Here are some of the things I was talking about this week. 

About bankruptcy, this is a pretty esoteric topic…but there are a few recent cases that may make it harder for owners of debt to “credit-bid.”  You have to know some bankruptcy lingo to follow along fully.  But the main concern from some is that these recent court decisions may chill the secondary market for commercial loans in the United States.  Sounds boring, but there is a ton of economic activity around buying portfolios of loans.  This issue could attract large lobbying dollars in Congress. 

My personal opinion is that the concern from these cases is overblown.  Time will tell though.  For now, Bob Goodrich and his team @StitesLaw did a nice job explaining the problem.

And a few links related to leadership and governance issues. 

And, one that just shows I am a math nerd; I like numbers.

Finally, thanks again to all of my family, friends and colleagues who are wishing Waypoint well.  I appreciate it.
