Wolfson Bolton is pleased to announce that Michelle H. Bass has been named to Crain’s 2021 list of Notable Women in Law. The honorees were selected by a team of Crain’s Detroit Business editors based on their career accomplishments, track record of success in the field and mentorship of others.
Michelle Bass has been leading Wolfson Bolton’s Consumer Bankruptcy Group since she joined the firm in 2017. She also serves in a leadership role on the Consumer Bankruptcy Committee of the American Bankruptcy Institute. In 2020, Bass represented one of the nation’s first Chapter 11 debtors to confirm a plan under the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019. By converting her client’s Chapter 11 case to a small-business case, she was able to settle a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the client and his company.
“Michelle is a leader in consumer bankruptcy law,” said Scott Wolfson, member of Wolfson Bolton. “She also gives back to the bar as a frequent speaker and author, including as a contributing author to a recently published treatise, and as a leader in the field’s professional organizations, like the American Bankruptcy Institute and the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation.”
