“Brian’s recent role as regional general counsel to one of our area’s largest employers afforded him the unique opportunity to handle complex local and multinational issues on a daily basis,” says Mark Cunningham, president and managing shareholder. “He’s walked in the clients’ shoes and has the ability to view intricate legal and business-related issues from the client’s perspective.”
