McGuireWoods partner Bryan C. Brantley has been named an MCCA Rainmaker by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, the legal profession’s premier diversity and inclusion organization. The annual list recognizes lawyers “whose business acumen, passion and dedication to proactive client development has set them apart as leaders in the legal profession.”
Brantley is co-head of McGuireWoods’ transportation industry team, a member of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion and Finance Committees, and pro bono coordinator for the firm’s Pittsburgh office. He has national litigation experience across industries including transportation, retail, construction equipment, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.
Brantley serves as national coordinating counsel and manages a significant portfolio of litigation, as well as a major technology platform, for a Fortune 50 transportation company. He also played a key role creating a litigation management dashboard with analytics components to give clients greater insights and predictability into their litigation. McGuireWoods honored him with the firm’s 2015 Diversity & Inclusion Excellence Award for his leadership assembling diverse legal teams.
“I am honored to be recognized by a respected national organization like the MCCA,” Brantley said. “This recognition also is a tribute to our firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, which is integral to our culture and core values. I am grateful to my colleagues for their support and to our clients for the trust they place in us.”
Brantley and his fellow MCCA Rainmaker honorees will be recognized in October at the organization’s Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference and Diversity Gala in New York City.
This is the third year in a row that a McGuireWoods lawyer has been recognized as an MCCA Rainmaker. Raj Natarajan, chair of the firm’s Debt Finance Department, was named to the list in 2019 and deputy managing partner Joanne Katsantonis received the honor in 2018.
