NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 3, 2014 – Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C. has announced the addition of an 11 Principal team and the opening of a new office in Birmingham, Ala. The new group, led by A. Inge Selden, III, Carole G. Miller and Stephen E. Brown, enhances Bressler’s reputation as a go-to firm for financial institutions and other corporations seeking representation in employment, securities, regulatory and litigation matters. The new office opened February 3 and is located at the Wells Fargo Tower, 420 20th Street North, Suite 2200, Birmingham, AL 35203. Bressler also has offices in New York, New Jersey and Florida. The attorneys joining were formerly in practice with Maynard Cooper & Gale PC. "Inge and I have sat at the table together many times as co-counsel, representing the same clients. Our partners and colleagues have worked together. There’s a trust, rapport and true friendship that has developed,” said Brian F. Amery, Bressler’s Managing Shareholder. “Our practices are similar yet different,” Mr. Amery continued. “Where they overlap, we bring a depth of experience to our clients. Yet there are other areas in which all of our attorneys will have opportunities to grow, representing new clients in new industries.”“Technology enables us to work together seamlessly regardless of location. Bringing together this group of lawyers, who have garnered significant and impressive national experience, simply makes sense in the representation of our clients and the future growth of our firm,” said Inge Selden, who will manage the Birmingham office. “We also have a high level of trust and share the same dedication to ethical and professional standards.”Carole G. Miller, who joins in Birmingham, will become co-chair of Bressler’s labor and employment group with attorney Jed Marcus, who resides in the firm’s New Jersey office. The employment team joining Bressler brings vast experience in all areas of labor and employment law, representing clients across the country in various industries including financial services, manufacturing, retail, education, healthcare, and many others. While Bressler is best known for its work in the securities litigation and regulatory practice areas, it is a full-service firm whose lawyers represent clients in a broad range of practice areas across the country. It represents Fortune 500 corporations, midsize and smaller privately held companies, brokerage firms, banks, franchises, insurance companies, nonprofit institutions and individuals in complex transactional and litigation matters. The Birmingham group brings extensive national experience as well, enhancing Bressler’s position as a litigation powerhouse. Joining Mr. Selden, Ms. Miller and Mr. Brown as Principals will be: Janell M. Ahnert, Audrey Y. Dupont, Andrea M. Greene, Rima Hartman, Joshua D. Jones, Kathryn Dietrich Perreault, Stuart D. Roberts, and Bradley B. Rounsaville.
