Barclay Damon Announces New Practice Group Leaders

January 8, 2020—Barclay Damon announces, effective January 1, the following new practice group leadership changes: Rosemary Enright, Labor & Employment Practice Group leader; Heather Sunser, Financial Services Practice Group leader; Brenda Colella, Regulatory Practice Group deputy leader, and Jeff Dove, Business Services Practice Group leader.

“Rosemary, Heather, Brenda, and Jeff have each played an important part in the success of their respective practice groups, which will continue to thrive under their strategic oversight and guidance as they step into these new roles,” John Langan, the firm’s managing partner, said. “We are confident in their legal skills, extensive industry knowledge, strong leadership abilities, and dedication to maintaining firm values such as collaboration, inclusivity, and innovation in all that we do. We are also pleased––particularly in light of Connie Cahill’s approaching transition to managing partner at the end of 2020–– that these appointments substantially advance our continued commitment to gender equity in the legal services teams we offer to clients and in our firm operations.”

A member of the Labor & Employment Practice Area and Canada-US cross-border team, Enright will lead the firm’s newly formed Labor & Employment Practice Group. Prior to the formation of this new practice group, the Labor & Employment Practice Area was housed within the Business Services Practice Group. Its elevation to a stand-alone practice group is a testament to this group’s rapid growth under its founder, late partner Larry Oppenheimer.

A member of the Real Estate, Financial Institutions & Lending, and Telecommunications Practice Areas as well as the energy and cannabis teams, Sunser will serve as the Financial Services Practice Group leader. She is taking over the role from longstanding firm leader and partner Ned Trombly.

A co-chair of the Regulatory Practice Area, co-team leader of the renewable energy and energy markets teams, and a member of the Project Development Practice Area and energy and oil and gas teams, Colella will serve as the Regulatory Practice Group deputy leader until June, when she will take over as Regulatory Practice Group leader from Jeff Davis, Telecommunications Practice Area chair and Project Development Practice Area co-chair.

A co-chair of the Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights and member of the Corporate Practice Area, Dove will serve as the Business Services Practice Group leader. He is taking over the role from Bob Heary, who has become Labor & Employment Practice Area chair.
