Welcome to the latest feature in our Hospitality Leadership series! Today we feature Brad Maxwell, EVP and General Counsel. Brad has been leading Sonesta’s legal efforts since he joined the company in 2015, and he was appointed General Counsel in 2017.

In his time at Sonesta, Brad has grown the legal department from just one person to a team of lawyers, paralegals, specialists, and other professionals, capable of servicing the company’s contracting, litigation, franchising, claims and risk management, trademarks, and licensing legal needs.

Prior to entering the hospitality industry, Brad served as Assistant General Counsel with Reit Management & Research LLC (now The RMR Group), from 2011 until 2015.  Before joining RMR, he practiced in the Real Estate Investments & Transactions group at Ropes & Gray LLP in Boston from 2004 to 2011. 

Brad will be a panelist at ALIS The Law Conference for Hotel Owners & Operators this January in Los Angeles.
