Mr. Weissberg brings over 20 years of legal experience to the Optelcon Team. Unlike many lawyers who take a narrow — “legalistic” — view of business matters, Ariel is widely known and respected for his grasp of the complex interplay between legal issues and broader business concerns and challenges. Beyond problem solving, Ariel proactively practices “problem-avoidance”, and enables both our partners and clients to advance more efficiently and with greater vision. As a skilled negotiator, Ariel’s significant contract negotiating experience enables our clients to secure the best legal terms, conditions and pricing.
Ariel has deep roots in the Chicago community. The son of Rabbi Victor H. Weissberg, Ariel graduated from Washington University (B.A. 1976) and received his J.D. from St. Louis University Law School (1979). He returned to Chicago, where, besides practicing law, he involved himself in charitable and community-based activities.
