Berkeley Research Group Opens Philadelphia Office
Global expert services and consulting firm Berkeley Research Group has established an office in Philadelphia, strengthening its presence in the tri-state area. The expansion reflects the firm's commitment to providing world-class expertise to the corridor's major companies in industries including pharmaceutical, medical device, healthcare, telecom, and oil and gas, as well as to leading law firms.
BRG Director Edward Buthusiem, who also leads the firm's Corporate Compliance and Risk Management Advisory services, will head the new office. Mr. Buthusiem advises clients on a variety of business, regulatory, operational, intellectual property, litigation, transactional, and compliance matters, with particular emphasis in legal operations, commercial and strategic transactions, technology licensing arrangements, business formation and planning, securities, mergers and acquisitions, compliance, and corporate governance. He previously served as the general counsel of two major divisions of two multinational companies and as an attorney in the business, securities, and international law practice groups at two global law firms.
"The addition of a Philadelphia office positions us well to advise clients in the region on the full range of complex issues they face," said Mr. Buthusiem. "We offer deep industry experience and unique and invaluable expertise to effectively address clients' most pressing business challenges."
Also joining the office is Principal Cheray Lynch Sieminski, who provides forensic analysis and regulatory advisory services to healthcare and life sciences companies and their legal counsel. Ms. Sieminski develops innovative, efficient solutions and analytical tools to examine and quantify business and legal issues in the context of commercial litigation, government investigations, and other regulatory-driven initiatives. She has substantial experience in the execution of complex, high-profile, data-intensive projects with multidisciplinary teams.
