Partner Spotlight – Gene Burd

Why did you join FisherBroyles?

For me, the most important thing was the idea of having more flexibility and time to manage my work and family responsibilities.

Prior to joining FisherBroyles, I had a long commute to get into the office and was spending a lot of time unproductively.

Since joining the Firm, I have been able to enjoy a better work-life balance, spend more productive time on serving clients efficiently, and maintain other commitments outside of work.

The nationwide platform at FisherBroyles was also extremely attractive.

How is it different from previous law firms you have worked at?

I am an international disputes lawyer. In addition to not having the long commute, the FisherBroyles platform is more international than at my previous firm, which is a tremendous advantage to my practice.

FisherBroyles has licensed lawyers in almost all of the US jurisdictions. This means we can represent clients all over the US and consult fellow partners who are dealing with specific legal issues in that jurisdiction. This allows us to provide the best possible service to clients and is what makes the FisherBroyles platform invaluable.

How would you describe FisherBroyles’ culture?

The culture at FisherBroyles is entrepreneurial, forward-thinking and collaborative. FisherBroyles partners are open to considering new ideas and ways of doing business. It has been a great ride so far.

What benefits does it bring to clients?

The fact that everyone at the Firm has extensive experience and are knowledgeable lawyers in a wide range of different fields is hugely beneficial to clients.

We are able to provide client’s quick answers on complicated questions pertaining to different fields.

It is a real time saver that we don’t need to vet an outside counsel and enhances the efficiency of our business.

What benefits does it bring to you?

Working at FisherBroyles has afforded me much greater flexibility, a better work-life balance, and extended the scope of service that I can provide to clients.

What would your message be to other lawyers interested in FisherBroyles? 

Ask questions, reach out, and consider it. We have a great variety of lawyers in different practices and jurisdictions who have all found the platform efficient and effective.
