Terry Brody has nearly 20 years of experience helping clients navigate complex legal, regulatory, and operational risks and challenges. Drawing upon his unique leadership experiences in government and the private sector, Terry regularly represents government instrumentalities and private businesses in complex transactions, provides compliance counseling, and delivers independent monitoring and reporting services for organizations that allegedly engaged in misconduct or that proactively seek to reduce the risk of noncompliance with applicable laws, regulations, and authorities.
Earlier in his career, Terry served on the New Jersey Attorney General’s executive team, where he oversaw a department of more than 8,000 employees. In that role, Terry advised the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and cabinet on a wide variety of complex legal, regulatory, law enforcement, and emergency management matters. Terry also was responsible for managing high-priority investigations and enforcement actions involving securities law violations, consumer protection laws, natural resource damages, and many more. Terry led the negotiations on behalf of the State in connection with the highly-publicized payment dispute with the federal government arising from the cancellation of the Access to the Region’s Core (“ARC”) tunnel project, which was the predecessor to the Gateway project.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Terry helped establish and build a central recovery office charged with coordinating the state of New Jersey’s multibillion-dollar disaster recovery effort. He was later appointed by the New Jersey Governor to a dual cabinet and senior staff position to head the recovery office. In this role, Terry managed a cross-agency, multidisciplinary team that performed a comprehensive analysis of storm impacts, risks, and vulnerabilities, and developed a suite of recovery and resilience initiatives to address impacts across all sectors, including housing, infrastructure (e.g., transportation, environmental, and utilities), economic development, and health and social services. Terry also assisted in the development of compliance and monitoring protocols to mitigate the risk of fraud, waste, and abuse, and to enhance transparency, and managed audits and other inquiries from various inspectors general and the US Government Accountability Office.
Earlier in his career, Terry worked at two large law firms representing clients in complex commercial litigations, corporate investigations, and regulatory matters, and advised executives and board members on corporate governance requirements and best practices, litigation risk, and other business decisions.
