Brook, Co-Founder and principal of Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds, was featured in the Boston Business Journal’s inaugural “Who’s Who in Legal Services.” The feature appeared in the BBJ’s March 11th issue and profiled Boston area attorneys on their work and the issues facing the legal profession.

When asked to share his thoughts and important issues facing the legal profession, Mr. Brook said “The low public perception, in general, despite the fact that the vast majority of lawyers are highly ethical and work extremely hard on behalf of their clients.” His advice to someone entering the field today however is “Go for it. Patent law is a very rewarding profession with the opportunity to be creative and imaginative every day.”

And when asked about his career highlight, he said “There have been many. The first was changing careers from chemical engineering to patent law followed by becoming a specialist in biotechnology patent law. Another was co-founding a small patent law firm that has thrived and achieved outstanding results for our clients.”

As for the best advice he was given “Find a career you love. If you don’t have one, change your career.”
