Brown Rudnick forms international Cleantech team

Issue July/August 2008

Brown, Rudnick, Berlack, Israels LLP recently announced that it has established a Cleantech team to serve the needs of companies and investors involved in renewable, sustainable and environmentally safe technologies.

Brown Rudnick’s international Cleantech team pools talent from a number of the firm’s established practice groups, among them: Energy, Climate, Corporate & Emerging Growth, Corporate Finance, Structured Finance, Intellectual Property, Environmental, Government Relations and Tax. By combining experienced professionals from across these disciplines, Brown Rudnick is able to provide fully integrated solutions to investors, entrepreneurs, developers, service providers and other cleantech market participants.

According to Brown Rudnick Chief Executive Officer Joseph F. Ryan, "Although cleantech is a rapidly evolving sector, our core capabilities are time-tested, and our clients benefit from not only the experience we bring, but also from the culture here at the firm that is rooted in collaboration, teamwork and a collective focus on client success. We like to say that we have a distinctive cleantech offering because clients cannot outgrow us."

Brown Rudnick is also a Signature Signer of the MBA Lawyers Eco-Challenge, an initiative launched last fall to encourage green practices in the legal community. Brown Rudnick is one of more than 60 lawyers, firms or organizations across the state to sign the MBA Lawyers Environmental Pledge, which asks attorneys to implement the MBA Green Guidelines.
