Brendan thought he was meeting Managing Partner Meghan Sullivan for an informational interview regarding labor and employment law opportunities in Springfield. A few minutes into their conversation, he realized he was being interviewed for a job with the firm. He was intrigued by the prospect and later accepted an offer to join the firm.
He’s happy he did. After four years representing labor unions and their benefit funds in Hartford, he was ready to make the switch to the other side, representing management. He believes his prior experience and perspective will prove useful to his work. Given the collaborative culture at Sullivan, Hayes & Quinn, Brendan believes he will learn a lot both from his peers as well as the opportunities afforded by the firm’s commitment to continuing education.
Brendan believes the most effective lawyer helps clients avoid conflict. Building client relationships based on trust goes a long way toward that end. These thoughts are very much in keeping with the ethos at SHQ.
Brendan and his wife live in western Massachusetts. He’s looking forward to becoming involved in the community, something he wasn’t able to do with longer commutes to his former job. In addition, he intends to continue to run. According to Brendan, running helps him stay focused and disciplined in managing the responsibilities that come with the profession.
