Bill Wassweiler joined Ampersand Families because he believes that every child needs a “sense of place” – a permanent home that fosters a sense of belonging. Bill’s other non-profit board experiences include past president of Teenwise Minnesota (formally known as MOAPPP), an organization dedicated to promoting adolescent sexual health and development. Bill also travels to Central America each year to volunteer at the NPH Orphanage near Jinotepe, Nicaragua. He also provides pro bono representation to low-income domestic violence victims seeking civil orders for protection through the Tubman pro bono safety project.
Bill is also a partner with the law firm of Lindquist & Vennum, LLP and represents banks, other secured lenders/creditors, and indenture trustees. His areas of expertise include bankruptcy and workouts, bond defaults, creditor-rights litigation, real estate litigation, receiverships and foreclosures. Bill regularly argues bankruptcy appeals before U.S. Bankruptcy Appellate Panels and in U.S. appellate courts. Before earning his J.D., Bill was a certified public accountant for several years at Deloitte (formally Deloitte Haskins & Sells), a large international accounting firm, and has experience auditing both non-profit and for-profit organizations.
