People spotlight

A senior employment and litigation attorney in the Denver office, Michael Freimann has nearly 20 years of experience.

Why Brownstein?
Brownstein has a tremendous reputation in the community, which is second to none. Also, I was very impressed with the firm’s culture and how giving back to the community is a priority. And last, but certainly not least, are the people and the collegial and collaborative nature of everyone at the firm.

Sarah Auchterlonie’s expertise is consumer finance and banking. She represents companies in government investigations by state attorneys generals, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, state financial services departments and the Federal Trade Commission.

Why Brownstein?
Brownstein has a fabulous intersection between my very niche area and the work the firm is doing in the government relations space.

Diane De Felice is a shareholder in the Los Angeles office and an industry leader in land use, environmental and real estate law.

Why Brownstein?
Brownstein has given me the advantage of having a national platform to not only market my practice, but also access to the unique skills and talents of the entire Natural Resources Department firmwide.

Albert Kovacs, a shareholder in the Las Vegas office, devotes particular attention to advising and guiding clients with respect to the distinctive aspects of Nevada’s corporate and business laws.

Why Brownstein?
After a few years as an associate in New York, I decided to make my way to Las Vegas. I was enamored with the city’s uncommon blend of sophistication and opportunity. I found the firm to be very similar and was eager to be a part of the firm that sets the standard in Nevada.

With more than 20 years of experience both as a first-chair litigator and in public service, Greg Brower’s practice focuses on civil and criminal litigation, as well as regulatory and enforcement actions, corporate investigations, and federal and state government relations.

Why Brownstein?
The answer I’ve been giving is: great firm, great people, great clients. And I really do believe that. I’ve known people in the Nevada and D.C. offices for a really long time, and the firm’s motto, “At the intersection of business, law and politics,” is an approach I can relate to.

Hal Stratton's diverse practice includes advising clients in the areas of mining, oil and natural gas, natural resources, product safety regulation, products liability litigation, state and federal government relations and multistate and class action litigation with an emphasis on product safety and liability.

Why Brownstein?
When I was leaving Washington, D.C., after serving as chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, it was important to me to find a firm with an Albuquerque office. With the reputation of Brownstein, which I was aware of from my time in D.C., added to the fact that the firm had a regional practice plus a D.C. office, allowed me to use my Washington and national experience while still living in Albuquerque.

At Brownstein, we embrace an entrepreneurial spirit in all of our attorneys which makes our firm a special place to work. We believe in empowering our people to create their own opportunities, choose their own path, and direct their own career.

We are a dynamic organization, constantly evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients and the legal market. That means we are interested in hearing what you can bring to our team, including the success you’ve had elsewhere and the specialized skills you can contribute.

In exchange, we provide unique opportunities for you to grow your practice, share your expertise and achieve your goals in a collaborative environment. Upon arrival at the firm, both newly graduated and lateral attorneys are assigned a mentor who helps the attorney to integrate into the firm’s culture and take advantage of its many resources. Those resources include an experienced team devoted to ongoing business and professional development and who are ready to help individual attorneys achieve short- and long-term goals.
