Attorney Bryan Feldhaus graduated with his LL.M. degree in Corporate Compliance and Organizational Ethics from the University of St. Thomas School of Law on May 9th. Bryan was part of UST Law’s inaugural class in the LL.M. compliance program, which responds to the growing risk of compliance and regulatory-related obligations businesses of all sizes face.

“One of the primary threats to companies is compliance and regulatory risk,” Bryan said. “Businesses are under increasing pressure to manage compliance concerns while advancing business objectives. The LL.M. program provided me an advanced legal degree that was focused on the mechanics of corporate compliance/ethics protocols and how those protocols enhance business objectives and promote corporate sustainability within an expanding legal and regulatory framework.”

The LL.M. degree is particularly beneficial to Bryan’s business and commercial litigation practice where he represents small and medium-sized businesses in civil litigation, regulatory investigations, and government enforcement actions. “The LL.M. degree required me to critically examine and study the intersection of law, business and ethics. That experience will enable me to better advise clients when managing litigation or regulatory proceedings, and will also allow me to devise and implement compliance programs for clients to mitigate their future compliance and regulatory risk.”
