John B. Brady, a retired partner, joined Debevoise in 1977. As a partner in the Corporate Department, Mr. Brady's practice principally involved representing corporations in structuring and implementing corporate finance, securities and other transactions. His practice included many transactions that were innovative and, in some instances, the first of their kind, including novel public and international financing transactions.

Mr. Brady began concentrating on the training and development of lawyers beginning in 1998. He created over 40 seminars on topics such as legal ethics, basic and advanced negotiation, corporate finance, basic accounting, counselling, conflict resolution, document drafting, practice management, decision-making, and client relations that were offered periodically to the firm’s lawyers and, on occasion, to clients and others.

Mr. Brady received his A.B. from the University of Notre Dame in 1971, an M.A. from New York University in 1972 and his J.D. from Yale Law School in 1977.
