Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Edward Burbach’s recent appointment as managing partner of the firm’s Austin office is highlighted in legal press, including a Law360 article titled, “Veteran Gov't Affairs Atty To Lead Foley's Austin Office.” Burbach assumes the office managing partner role after the recent passing of Kim Yelkin, who opened the Austin office in 2002 and served in the position for the last 20 years.
Burbach said, “Kim was an inspirational leader and tireless champion of the firm who made the Austin office what it is today. I am humbled and honored to expand on the strong foundation and rich culture she built. As Austin continues to grow and the intersection between business and government deepens, I look forward to increasing Foley's local bench strength and helping clients understand how the government intersects with key sectors and, ultimately, impacts their business."
