SYRACUSE — Syracuse–based law firm Mackenzie Hughes LLP on July 27 announced it has added two new lawyers, Joseph Farrell and Brandan Ray, to the firm.
Farrell has joined the law firm as a partner in its litigation department and will concentrate his legal practice on medical-malpractice defense.
Farrell has been practicing law for more than 10 years. He has defended physicians, midlevel providers, and facilities in medical-malpractice actions, per an email the firm sent to clients.
He has also represented medical providers in matters involving the New York State Office of Professional Medical Conduct and the New York State Office of Professional Development.
Farrell earned his law degree from the Syracuse University College of Law and is a member of New York Bar Association and Onondaga County Bar Association.
Ray has joined Mackenzie Hughes as an associate in the firm’s business department.
His practice primarily focuses on business formation and governance, private investment transactions, and intellectual property.
Ray has written an article for the Mackenzie Hughes blog on a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision which will have “broad application” for federal trademark registration, the firm said.
Ray received his law degree from Boston University School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from Boston College. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association, as well as the Massachusetts Bar Association.
