Saul Ewing Attorney Eric L. Brossman Elected Chair of PBA Business Law Section
Saul Ewing LLP, a full service law firm with more than 270 lawyers in 11 East Coast offices, today announced that Eric L. Brossman, an attorney in the firm’s Business and Finance and Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practices, has been elected Chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s (PBA) Business Law Section. He will serve a one-year term.
PBA’s Business Law Section, through its various task forces, plays an important role in drafting and advocating the enactment of bills creating or amending the commercial and business laws of the Commonwealth. The Section's legislative efforts are consistent with its charge as set forth in the PBA Bylaws, which is to "take as its province the development and practical working of the law of this Commonwealth and of the United States, relating to banks and banking, to other business and nonprofit corporations, partnerships and associations, to the law relating to mercantile and commercial transactions, including the fields of bankruptcy, insolvency and receiverships and of business regulation law." The Business Law Section has been recognized as one of the most active PBA Sections, primarily because of its participation in developing legislation beneficial to the business and banking communities.
At Saul Ewing, Mr. Brossman concentrates his practice in the areas of corporate, business and bankruptcy law, business reorganization and counseling, corporate finance, UCC Article 8 and Article 9 secured transactions, mergers and acquisitions and venture capital transactions. He frequently lectures and writes on business, bankruptcy and reorganization issues, and on the subjects of corporate governance, commercial loan documentation, loan restructuring, secured transactions, fraudulent transfer (voidable transactions) law, loan enforcement, legal opinion letters, and venture capital financing.
Mr. Brossman earned his J.D., cum laude, from Penn State The Dickinson School of Law, his M.A., with highest honors, from The Pennsylvania State University and his B.A., summa cum laude, from Albright College.
