Brooks Kushman, a nationally ranked intellectual property law firm, is proud to announce the transition to a newly appointed Executive Committee to serve as the firm’s governing leadership.

We are confident that we have all the right pieces in place to lead the firm into the future and to continue to achieve success and long-term growth. Each of these members has played a significant role in shaping the firm’s culture and client growth over the last decade, and I am confident the firm is in excellent hands.”
