United States: Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner Adds Five Attorneys To Technology And Outsourcing Practice
Last Updated: January 3 2007

Hartford and New York (January 3, 2007)—Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner LLP continues its post-merger expansion with the addition of five new attorneys in the firm’s Technology, Media, and Communications (TMC) Department.

Richard Green, formerly of Connecticut’s Wiggin and Dana, has joined the firm as a partner in the Hartford office. Making the move with Green are former Wiggin associates Craig Conte, Betsy Golden, and Kasia Lessard. Conte will be resident in the firm’s New York offices, while Golden and Lessard will be based in Hartford. Also joining the Technology practice in New York is associate Ieuan Jolly, who comes to the firm from the London office of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, where he practiced in the Global Sourcing and Technology Department.

For Green and Conte, joining Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner is something of a homecoming as both lawyers started their careers with Brown Raysman in the 1990’s. "We are very pleased to welcome Rich back to the firm," said Jeffrey Neuburger, Chair of Thelen Reid Brown Raysman’s Technology, Media, and Communications practice. "Rich’s established client base and knowledge of the IT and outsourcing landscape make him a great addition to one of our signature departments."

Green’s choice of Hartford as the home office for his group also allows the Firm to re-establish one of its core practice groups in New England. "With his drive, savvy, and strong marketing skills, Rich represents a formidable emerging IT talent," said Hartford office Managing Partner Norman Roos. "With the addition of Rich and his team, we can greatly enhance our position to perform IT work generated in Hartford and elsewhere throughout the firm."

Green and his team will continue to focus their practice on the representation of customers and vendors in technology, intellectual property, e-business, and outsourcing matters. On the customer side, Green will continue to represent large, Global 1000 companies such as Tokio Marine Nichido, while companies in the emerging to mid-cap category, such as FusionPoint LLC and 3D Systems, Inc., will remain the focal point of his vendor-side work. Rich and his team will also leverage the Firm’s global reach to help them better serve their international clients, including UK-based Office-Shadow Ltd. and France’s Cartesis SA.

Green said it was the combined firms’ global capabilities that proved the deciding factor in drawing his group to the firm. "There are a lot of good corporate practices out there testing the IT and outsourcing waters, but no one has the combination of organic global presence and genuine technology and outsourcing experience offered by the merger of Thelen Reid and Brown Raysman," Green said. "When we looked at what globalization really means for our clients—the further opening of capital markets, a focus on outsourcing and technology, and the necessity to do business in or with China—Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner presented the most compelling platform."

Green received his law degree from the University of Connecticut in 1998 and graduated, summa cum laude, from the Honors Scholar Program at Central Connecticut State University with a B.A. in 1995. He served as a non-commissioned officer in the U.S. Marine Corps until 1991. In 2006, Green was named a "Best Lawyer" in Connecticut.
