WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT

Attorney of the Week
Bruno Katz

Bruno Katz maintains a diverse business litigation practice with an emphasis on labor and employment, corporate litigation and complex multi-party litigation. Bruno represents a wide variety of clients, including hospitality, transportation, pharmaceutical/ health care and construction companies, as well as insurance brokers and agents, attorneys and utilities. He is a strong litigator, trial attorney and advocate. Bruno believes in resolving cases quickly. He partners with his clients to understand the facts and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each case, advancing to trial only when it is mutually agreed that this represents the best approach. He moves proactively to put the plaintiff on the defensive, always respecting his client’s bottom line. A captain in the Navy Reserves with the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG), Bruno has nearly 30 years of service in both an active and a reserve capacity.

Law Firm of the Week
Messner Reeves

Messner Reeves provides the full range of legal services to a diverse group of clients—from Fortune 500 companies to individual entrepreneurs. We are as excited about working with the small business owner as we are the largest corporation because, for us, it’s all about maximizing potential. We develop the legal strategies that can help propel the minor operation to the next level or the next ten levels—whether that means doubling in size or becoming a worldwide, publicly-traded enterprise. We serve family-owned and emerging enterprises, entrepreneurs, insurance carriers and agencies, banks and other financial institutions, venture capital funds, engineering firms, real estate developers, and individuals. No other law firm is structured quite like we are. At Messner Reeves, we act as general counsel to an amazing array of clients which makes us a large consumer of legal services on our clients’ behalf. That means we are able to maintain a perspective—as both a client and a firm.
