Brooks Kushman announces new Executive Committee to serve as firm leadership

Brooks Kushman this week announced the transition to a newly appointed Executive Committee to serve as the firm’s governing leadership. Mark Cantor will continue his role as chairman of the board and general counsel of the firm and will work with the new Executive Committee to ensure a smooth transition.

Shareholders elected Frank Angileri, Sangeeta Shah, Michael Brodbine, Elizabeth Janda and Matthew Jakubowski to serve as the Executive Committee, which assume leadership of the firm January 1.

Additionally, in connection with the transition, the shareholders have elected two new officers. Frank Angileri was elected president of the firm and Sangeeta Shah was elected  chairperson of the Executive Committee. Angileri and Shah have been instrumental in achieving results for clients, growing the firm’s client base, increasing employee enrichment, driving pro bono efforts, and implementing training and mentoring programs.

“It has been an honor serving as the firm’s president for over a decade” said Cantor. “This move is part of a succession plan that has been in place for several years. We are confident that we have all the right pieces in place to lead the firm into the future and to continue to achieve success and long-term growth. Each of these members has played a significant role in shaping the firm’s culture and client growth over the last decade, and I am confident the firm is in excellent hands.” 

The continued focus of the Executive Committee will be to ensure operational excellence, client satisfaction, expertise and know-how across practice areas and industries, mentoring and training and diversity and inclusion.

“Brooks Kushman has a very strong reputation within the legal community and I look forward to building on this reputation and working with my fellow committee members to further advance and grow the firm,” said Shah.  “We will continue to employ and refine best practices to train our dynamic and diverse teams and implement the latest client-centered technology. We set the bar high and are excited and optimistic for the future.”

The team has begun to implement changes to continue the firm’s vision for the future. The firm has invested heavily in technology and operational enhancements, to increase efficiencies and better deliver service offerings targeted to each clients’ business and legal needs.

“The firm’s focus is always going to be operational excellence,” said Angileri. “We understand the legal landscape has changed drastically over the last several years and we have taken steps to be at the forefront of those changes. Our  priority will continue  to provide clients with the highest level of service in a more efficient and streamlined manner.”
