WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Warren’s bedside manner and ability to build consensus make him invaluable to me.”
“He makes my life easier.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"I try to put myself in the client’s position and then advise them what I would think would be important if I were in their shoes. Just as importantly, I try and tell them what doesn’t matter. Paraphrasing John Cleese ‘not many things matter, most, not at all’."
– Warren S. Bloom
Warren S. Bloom is Co-Chair of the National Public Finance Practice and began his legal career with Kaye Scholer in New York City in the mid-1980s concentrating on the representation of lending institutions in leveraged buyouts and “going private” transactions. Upon his relocation to Florida in late 1988, Warren began to focus his practice on public finance and the representation of creditor entities in such transactions (e.g., indenture trustees, bondholders, bond purchasers and credit enhancers). Since that time, Warren represents municipal security credit holders and indenture trustees in both new and existing distressed transactions in more than half of the United States.
Warren’s experience includes active roles in bankruptcies, foreclosures and consensual restructurings of municipal transactions both in Florida and throughout the nation. During the “Great Recession,” Warren worked on over $1 billion of land-based municipal securities restructurings. His practice continues to include a substantial amount of underwriters’ counsel, bond counsel, purchaser’s counsel and credit enhancers’ counsel roles on new transactions.
