GROWING INTO NEW PRACTICE AREAS
Berenzweig Leonard, LLP helps companies, executives, artists and entrepreneurs address significant legal issues impacting their businesses. The firm has grown steadily by gradually integrating new key employees and additional practice areas. “Our new employees have not only blended well into our culture of intentional growth and passionate representation of our clients, but have also helped the firm grow by leveraging unique aspects of their professional profile,” says Seth Berenzweig, managing partner at Berenzweig Leonard. “For example, new partner Steve Britt has a unique background in technology law and cybersecurity, practice areas which are critical to helping businesses guard against attacks.”
Quick Tip: “A great leader is an individual who prioritizes the organization over himself.”
Recruitment has also posed a challenge for Berenzweig Leonard, particularly as it expands into highly specialized practice areas such as music law. “We solved the problem by being patient and persistent, and ultimately found attorney Frank Gulino. Frank is a conservatory-trained, award-winning classic trombonist, who has his own catalogue of internationally published works,” notes Berenzweig. “He now helps us represent individuals in the music industry, who are assured they are represented by an attorney who understands their trade and technical expertise.” Over the next five to 10 years, Berenzweig Leonard plans to keep growing by adding additional associate attorneys.
