Brown Rudnick’s William Baldiga to Become Firm’s New Chief Executive Officer

Brown Rudnick LLP announced today that William R. Baldiga will become Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Firm's Management Committee, effective upon the retirement of current Chief Executive Officer Joseph F. Ryan on March 15, 2019.

Baldiga takes the reins during a period of significant growth of such market-leading practices as white-collar defense, international arbitration and intellectual property litigation across its platform both in the United States and in its rapidly expanding offices in London and Paris. 

“I am honored to be selected by our partners for this critical role,” said Baldiga. “I am looking forward to building upon the tremendous success that we have achieved under Joe’s leadership with a strong emphasis on delivering the partner-driven service, focused expertise and highly collaborative approach that we are known for – and that our clients expect.”

In addition to his new role, Baldiga will continue to represent public and private companies and committees of creditors and shareholders in major restructuring cases. “I plan to remain very close to our clients, soliciting feedback and identifying how we can refine what we do to provide greater value,” said Baldiga.
