Law Firm Ekker, Kuster, McCall and Epstein Joins Brouse McDowell

AKRON, Ohio – Law firm Ekker, Kuster, McCall and Epstein has joined with Brouse McDowell, and the combined firm now operates under the name Brouse McDowell LPA.

Brouse McDowell has added eight attorneys, including partners Russell Adkins, Richard Epstein, Wade Fisher, Ronald McCall and Brett Stedman, counsel Sarah Kellogg and of counsels Ruthanne Beighley and Mark Longietti. 

The firm has nearly 90 attorneys and offices in Canfield, Akron, Cleveland, Toledo, Sharon, Pa., and Naples, Fla. 

“We are excited to combine with a firm that shares a similar commitment to community and client service and look forward to serving as a resource for continued growth in the region,” said Daniel Glessner, Brouse McDowell’s managing partner.

The announcement follows the joining of attorneys from Canfield-based Nadler Nadler and Burdman Co. LPA in late 2016, which expanded the firm’s coverage in the greater Youngstown area, and the joining of attorneys from Thacker Robinson Zinz in July 2018, expanding the firm’s presence in Toledo, Cleveland and Naples, Fla.

“We are excited to join a firm with a rich history, long-standing client relationships and deep-rooted community ties,” Epstein said. “Brouse McDowell demonstrates a commitment to excellence, professional responsibility and community involvement. EKME shares these same values.”

Brouse McDowell handles matters for corporations, governmental entities, individuals and other clients throughout the United States. 

“This is a great opportunity to enhance our services, providing clients with broader offerings, including specialty legal services in areas such as cybersecurity, estate planning and administration, business and succession planning, employment, ERISA, health care and insurance coverage, among others,” Epstein said.
