Bressler, Amery & Ross PC opened an office in Charlotte, N.C., one of the nation’s largest financial centers.
“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,” said Bressler Managing Principal Frank Cuccio in a prepared statement.
The new Charlotte office is the firm’s seventh location on the East Coast, joining outlets in Birmingham, Ala.; Fort Lauderdale and Miami Fla.; Washington, D.C.; New York City; and its Florham Park headquarters.
“Charlotte’s growth as a major commercial hub makes it a significant strategic location for us. We are looking beyond the curve,” said Cuccio. “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 be the Charlotte principal in charge. Bressler Associate Michael Morris, whose practice includes transactional work, insurance and health care issues with a focus on the financial arrangement/payor side, will also be located there.
Morris is a member of the firm’s insurance and business practices and its senior and vulnerable investor group. Cuccio, a member of the firm’s financial institutions practice group, previously worked in-house for several national brokerage firms and served as general counsel for two securities trading firms.
