Bressler, Amery & Ross, a law firm based in Florham Park, announced on Tuesday it has opened a new office in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“The firm recently opened its new office in Charlotte, while contending with COVID-19,” Frank Cuccio, managing principal, Bressler, said. “Unlike a number of other law firms which cut back during the pandemic, we have remained stable and strong, with an eye on future needs and growth.”
The new office is the firm’s seventh location on the East Coast, joining established firms in Birmingham, Alabama; Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida; Washington, D.C.; and New York City.
“Charlotte’s growth as a major commercial hub makes it a significant strategic location for us. We are looking beyond the curve,” Cuccio said. “Bressler is committed to planned growth and anticipating our clients’ needs. Since many of our current clients have large operations here, and almost every industry of business is represented here, a Charlotte office expansion is a logical next step for our growing platform.”
Cuccio will take on the role of principal in charge in Charlotte. Michael J. Morris will also work there, focusing on the financial arrangement/payor side of transactional work and insurance and health care issues. Morris is a member of Bressler’s Insurance and Business practices, the Senior and Vulnerable Investor Group, and the Financial Institutions practice group.
“Together, Frank and I look forward to establishing and growing our footprint in Charlotte,” Morris said. “It is a vibrant and dynamic legal market and we are excited to strengthen and extend our relationships with the wide range of clients based here.”
