New press release out today from the offices of the Forrest Firm
June 23, 2011 (Durham, NC)—James R. Forrest, principal and founder of the Forrest Firm, P.C., a law firm focused on delivering legal services to Triangle area businesses and corporate executives, announces the hiring of Bryan P. King into the firm’s 2011 summer associate program.
King is a 2007 graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, where he earned a degree in marketing with minors in international business and political science. A rising second-year law student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, King spent three years serving in a variety of roles at the Vanguard Group, a mutual fund company based in the Philadelphia, PA area. As part of Vanguard’s education markets group, King worked on a variety of projects with the company’s legal teams to meet client objectives while remaining compliant with corporate legal frameworks and external industry regulations.
“I am excited to be joining the Forrest Firm’s summer associate program for many reasons,” stated King. “James Forrest has launched a really great practice—he really cares about the Triangle community and making a real impact by helping businesses. I’m particularly excited about helping James in his work with start-up companies in the area. A big barrier for them is understanding the legal obstacles they face in developing great ideas into viable businesses, and his work at the Forrest Firm fills a great need in this area by helping them overcome those obstacles successfully.”
“We are every bit as excited to have Bryan King join us for the summer as he is to be here,” stated Forrest. “He is extremely bright, and brings a great mix of skills and experience from his undergraduate background in business, along with the range of work he performed on behalf of clients at Vanguard. That work has really prepared him to have a compatible perspective to my own, as we help Triangle businesses reach new levels of success through better risk management and strategic planning. I know this will be a mutually beneficial relationship, and I am proud to have him on board at the Forrest Firm.”
