There is nothing more inspiring for small town America than experiencing the renewed confidence that comes with new businesses or business expansions taking place within its borders. One such expansion is the new office location of the law firm of Berlandi Nussbaum & Reitzas LLP (BNR) at 517 Rt. 22, in the village of Pawling. Currently undergoing a complete renovation of their office space, which will accommodate several attorneys, they are a general practice firm offering legal services in corporate transactions, litigation, real estate, banking, media & entertainment, intellectual property, tax and trusts and estates, among other areas.
Brian Berlandi, a well known Pawling personality, will be situated in this new office space, having decided that the commute to his New York City office was too much wear and tear on a regular basis. He described the new Pawling space as the Hudson Valley office of a firm that is national in scope with offices in several locations. It is from this locale that regional and local clients will be serviced.
Berlandi, a former partner with Daniels & Porco, decided that it was time to have his own name on the door…”be his own boss and control his own destiny,”…a move that occurred when the firm opened for business July 1, 2011. Brian is a corporate attorney, handling all corporate transactions, banking, IP, technology and health care. He grew up in Boston, attended Bowdoin College as an undergraduate and Boston College Law School, graduating in 1999 and working for many years in several big firms in New York City.
Along with his wife Katie, (granddaughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. Norman Vincent Peale) he currently resides in Sherman with their daughters Amelia and Eloise, and son John. Moving back to the area in 2004 was a “coming home” for Katie, but Brian, describing himself as “a country boy at heart…just loves the Pawling area,” and donates his time to the community as Vice President of the Pawling Fire Department, and Captain of the Mizzentop Engine Company.
Following an open house celebrating BNR’s newest location Thursday, Aug 16, at Petite on East Main Street from 5-8 p.m., Brian may be reached at 212-804-6329 x501. The BNR website has wonderful information about the firm and the services they offer, and can be found at www.bnrllp.com
