The Brewers Association today announced the hire of Marc Sorini, J.D., as its first-ever in-house General Counsel.
Sorini has served as a counsel for craft brewers for over two decades, most recently as a partner with McDermott Will & Emery law firm, representing the BA and its predecessor organization, the Brewers Association of America (BAA).
“Having represented the Brewers Association as outside counsel since its formation, and the BAA before that, joining the BA in-house feels like coming home to the independent brewers that first inspired me to dedicate my legal career to alcohol beverage industry issues,” said Sorini. “I look forward to working with the BA to help small and independent craft brewers survive and thrive in a marketplace substantially altered by the COVID-19 pandemic, wholesaler consolidation, and the globalization of the beer industry.”
Sorini’s first day with the Brewers Association was July 1. He holds a Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University Law Center, and he will continue to be based in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
