MIAMI, January 21, 2015 – Morgan Lewis is pleased to announce the appointment of partner Robert M. Brochin as managing partner of the firm’s Miami office effective immediately as the firm – now one of the largest in the world – begins a significant new chapter in 2015.
Mr. Brochin’s 30-year career as a trial lawyer representing the firm’s corporate clients has spanned a wide spectrum of complex business, commercial, and regulatory matters. His experience is rooted in a decade of high-level public service to Florida’s Executive Branch. This distinguished service, first as Deputy Counsel to the Florida governor, then as Florida Inspector General and as an appointed member of the 1998 Florida Constitution Revision Commission, placed him at the nexus of Florida business issues and public law. His insight into Florida public law and business regulation is likewise informed by his writing and participation in framing the Florida False Claims Act of 1991, the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992, and Section 702.10 of the Florida Statutes, which provides for alternative foreclosure procedures. He earned his J.D. from the University of Florida School of Law in 1980.
“We are thrilled to have Robert as the leader of our Miami office, particularly at such an exciting time for the firm with our enhanced abilities to counsel and serve new and valued clients,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “Morgan Lewis is dedicated to delivering the highest quality results to advance our clients’ legal and business interests – from Miami to Tokyo, London to San Francisco, Silicon Valley to Moscow, and points in between.”
In November, Morgan Lewis welcomed more than 200 partners and nearly 600 other lawyers, legal professionals, and staff from Bingham McCutchen. Morgan Lewis offers clients global access to broad capabilities across a comprehensive spectrum of services and industries addressing virtually every aspect of corporate, financial, and asset management operations.
