Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. is pleased to announce that it has named Brendan M. Walsh Co-Chair of the firm’s litigation practice group, effective January 1, 2023. Walsh joins partner Sean Mack in leading the department, which is widely regarded as one of the top commercial litigation groups in New Jersey.
“Brendan has been one of the go-to attorneys in our litigation department since he joined the firm over 10 years ago,” said firm Chair and Managing Partner Michael S. Stein. “He represents the next generation of practice leaders, and his innovative approach will further strengthen our premier litigation practice. That some of the world’s largest companies and law firms continue to engage and recommend Brendan to others is a testament to his commitment to providing outstanding legal advocacy and client service.”
Walsh is an accomplished litigator with significant trial and appellate experience in both New Jersey and New York. His clients range from Fortune 500 corporations to high-net-worth individuals and closely held companies. Walsh brings substantial business experience to his litigation practice, having worked as a certified public accountant at Deloitte before law school. As an undergrad at the University of Notre Dame, Walsh worked as the head manager of the Notre Dame football team, an experience he credits with further developing his strong work ethic, dedication, leadership, and collaborative approach.
“I am thrilled to have Brendan join me in leading this extraordinary group of attorneys,” said Sean Mack. “Our litigation practice has experienced significant growth in recent years, not only with the expansion of our team, but with the additional experience many of the firm’s new lateral partners and retired judges bring in specialized areas such as appellate advocacy, cannabis and hemp law, construction law, media law, life sciences, and food, beverage and hospitality.”
“I am honored to be taking a leadership position in our litigation practice and look forward to working with Sean and the entire team to continue to grow and expand the capabilities of the department,” said Walsh.
In addition to handling sophisticated and complex business disputes, Pashman Stein Walder Hayden’s litigation department represents clients in a wide variety of general commercial and business disputes, including contract disputes; breach of fiduciary duty claims; commercial real estate disputes; consumer fraud claims; and cases involving business torts such as unfair competition, trademark and trade dress infringement, breach of confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements, breach of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, tortious interference with business and contractual relations, theft of trade secrets and confidential information, and theft of business opportunities.
