Weinberg and the Taft Minneapolis leadership team participate in a law firm strategic coalition to rejuvenate Minneapolis’ downtown. In 2021, Taft Minneapolis renovated its own office space to better support a modern and collaborative environment for attorneys and staff.
Weinberg serves as partner-in-charge of Taft Minneapolis and as outside general counsel to a variety of clients and industries; however, the majority of his work arises from real estate development and construction. In addition, he serves many clients in the areas of liquor licensing, regulatory issues, and hospitality. During the last recession, Weinberg shifted his focus to representing banks and institutional lenders in workouts, lender liability, and foreclosures – a practice Weinberg continues to maintain.
