Mr. Funsten has experience in counseling companies on intellectual property and litigation strategies, as well as in licensing and development, M&A, debt offerings and other transactions.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Brown Rudnick, Joseph F. Ryan commented, “We are delighted to welcome Rob to the firm. While our Orange County office, formally Rus, Miliband & Smith, has long been recognized for its excellence in complex litigation, our strategic plan for that office includes developing a strong corporate life sciences presence as well. An experienced industry advisor with sophisticated experience, Rob will enhance greatly our life sciences practice in Orange County and firm-wide.”

Managing Director of the Corporate & Capital Markets Department, Sam Williams, commented that the firm is expanding its “global footprint” in the area of life sciences from across the pond to across the country, and that the two decades that Rob brings to the table will be a huge asset to Brown Rudnick’s clients – who “themselves are industry leaders delivering cutting edge developments.”

The head of Brown Rudnick’s Orange County office, Ron Rus, commented that Rob has majorly contributed to the life sciences industry. “He brings a depth of knowledge and experience that have made him a highly respected and sought-after advisor.”

Thomas C. Meyers, partner and co-chair of the Global Life Sciences Group commented that the group was eager to have Rob join them. He also noted that Rob is a “recognized leader in the life science space.”

Rob Funsten himself said that he was happy to be joining Brown Rudnick. He felt that the life sciences attorneys there were truly top performers and that their understanding in their area was truly in depth and notable compared to other firms in the field. He goes on to say that “Brown Rudnick has an entrepreneurial, practical business approach that I believe my clients and other life sciences companies will find very attractive.”

Rob Funsten received his B.A. magna cum laude from UCLA and received his J.D. from Stanford Law School.
