Berlandi Nussbaum & Reitzas LLP (“BNR”) of New York, NY and Brophy & Devaney LAW, PLLC (“Brophy”) of Austin, TX, are pleased to announce their affiliation beginning November 1, 2021. While each law firm will remain separate for now, they will combine resources to cement a nationwide footprint and further strengthen their litigation and business practice groups. The affiliation will provide their clients with access to the broadest range of talented legal counsel, while maintaining the commitment to integrity and professionalism that has been the hallmark of both firms. BNR’s managing partner, Brian Berlandi, states that “Discussions are taking place to merge the firms in the coming months. However, we want our clients to benefit from this tremendous opportunity now and not have to wait.” Berlandi believes the legal expertise of lawyers from both firms will fit seamlessly. BNR will contribute a stable of top-rated commercial litigation attorneys throughout the States of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, along with its robust transactional practice group. Brophy will be able to expand its client’s general corporate representation, real estate, banking, and intellectual property expertise in Texas and across the country. Each firm features an impressive range of experience and expertise for new and existing business entities, non-profit organizations, individuals and estates in transactional and adversarial matters, be it trial work, arbitration or other forms of ADR. BNR and Brophy will combine veteran attorneys with rising lawyers, all of whom share a commitment to providing clients with exceptional legal representation. More than two-thirds of the partners at BNR have been recognized as New York Super Lawyers by the Thomson Reuters rating service, while Brophy has long been one of Texas’s top trial attorneys, having handled a wide array of litigation and transactional matters across the country. Its founder, Joseph Brophy, states that “we are very excited about the prospect of merging with BNR as it will expand the services we are able to offer our clients and strengthen our litigation support team in Texas, New York and throughout the country. This merger should solidify both firms amongst the premiere business litigation and transaction boutiques in the country.”
