Brogan Chubb to Clerk for Supreme Court of Virginia’s Chief Justice

September 5, 2023

McGuireWoods associate Brogan Chubb will depart the firm to become a law clerk for Chief Justice S. Bernard Goodwyn of the Supreme Court of Virginia. His last day will be Sept. 8, 2023.

Chubb joined McGuireWoods’ Environmental & Mass Tort Litigation Department in Richmond in November 2020. He represents private and publicly traded companies in the medical device, retail and consumer product manufacturing industries in class actions and product liability disputes. He also advises on labeling requirements for food, drink, and other consumer goods and appliances.

Chubb recently was recognized as one of the Top 40 Under 40 lawyers in Virginia by The National Black Lawyers, a professional and educational organization of African American attorneys who demonstrate excellence and achieve outstanding results in their careers. In 2022, he was named to the Virginia Access to Justice Commission’s Pro Bono Service Honor Roll.

He earned his J.D. in 2020 from William & Mary Law School, where he was vice president of the Black Law Students Association and a staff member on the Journal of Race, Gender and Social Justice. Before starting at the firm, he served as an extern for Judge Roderick C. Young of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

At McGuireWoods, “I have been blessed to learn what good lawyering looks like,” Chubb said. “My mentors gave me the opportunity to learn and grow as an attorney. Having partners who cared about my development greatly improved my practice and made me feel like a valuable team member.”

“We have been fortunate to have Brogan as a colleague and an excellent member of our team,” said Ben Hatch, chair of the Environmental & Mass Tort Litigation Department. “We wish him all the best as he takes this important next step in his career.”
