BOSTON –Attorney Richard W. Brown of the law firm Saxe Doernberger & Vita has been appointed to the Connecticut Advisory Council of the New England Legal Foundation (NELF), the leading non-profit public interest law firm in the region dedicated to addressing policy and constitutional concerns related to free enterprise.
Mr. Brown is a member of Saxe Doernberger & Vita’s Executive Committee and focuses his litigation practice on insurance coverage and business disputes. Mr. Brown joined Saxe Doernberger & Vita, P.C. more than a decade ago. During that time, he has litigated several issues of first impression in multiple jurisdictions and on legal issues relating to insurance coverage.
“We are indeed fortunate,” NELF President Daniel B. Winslow said, “to add Richard to our Foundation’s Connecticut Advisory Council. He brings a valuable perspective to NELF in Connecticut and a degree of additional gravitas to our Connecticut Advisory Council, an already impressive body of attorneys.”
“Our state Advisory Councils,” Mr. Winslow noted, “help develop our Foundation’s positions on public policy matters, and they often recommend legal advocacy for consideration by our Board of Directors on issues of importance to the region’s economy. The Advisory Councils also host speakers of interest to their particular sector of the economy at locations convenient to members in each state.”
