Miller & Company is pleased to announce that Bryan J. Brown has joined the firm as a partner. Bryan brings to our practice some 20 years of broad-based international trade law experience. He has counseled clients and developed compliance programs involving export controls, sanctions, anti-boycott, anti-corruption, customs, foreign-trade zones, and trade remedy laws.
Bryan comes to our firm with experience as a judicial law clerk at the U.S. Court of International Trade, as an associate in the international trade group of a large, Washington, D.C. law firm, and as in-house counsel with Caterpillar Inc. Bryan’s thirteen years with Caterpillar primarily involved counseling on international trade law matters. Five of those years were spent living in Moscow, Russia, leading legal operations for the Russian region. He provided counsel on a broad range of matters while there, including a significant amount of anti-corruption and Russian sanctions work. He also spent two years supporting Caterpillar’s global purchasing division, drafting and negotiating purchase agreements. In addition to Russia, Bryan also lived in Japan for nearly four years. While there, he passed the highest level of the Japanese language proficiency test (日本語能力試験一級). Upon returning from Japan, Bryan earned his Juris Doctor and Master of Laws in Japanese Law at the University of Washington.
Bryan’s broad range of international trade law experience, as well as his role as in-house counsel at a large multinational company and his overseas living experience, will serve our clients well. Please join us in welcoming Bryan to our practice.
