"The addition of a Chicago office is a natural extension of Brattle's continued growth, given the breadth of work we do with leading law firms, corporations, utilities, and regulatory authorities in the Midwest," said president Alexis Maniatis.

The Chicago office will be led by Branko Jovanovic, a principal who specializes in economic analysis and expert testimony in consumer protection, securities, and finance. Jovanovic’s Chicago team will also include senior associate Shastri Sandy and associates Dan Grana and Pablo Robles.
