Butzel Long attorney James Bruno's trans-national practice profiled in the Legal News
Global reach: Attorney active in firm's trans-national practice
With family roots in Italy and Germany, attorney James Bruno has always had an interest in events beyond U.S. borders. So it is no surprise that his career has had a focus on international business law.
After earning J.D. and M.B.A. degrees from the University of Michigan, Bruno took his first step up the legal ladder at a small law firm. Fellow Wolverine alumnus Jim Elsman, who previously worked for the international section of Chrysler legal, introduced him to trans-national business legal matters and immigration law.
“This was at a time when Detroit was less international and much of the trans-national legal work was done in Cleveland and New York – all of that has changed,” says Bruno.
