By a MetNews Staff Writer
Gregory Dresser has been named the State Bar’s new chief court counsel, it was announced yesterday.
In that role, which he will assume Oct. 23, he will act as the State Bar Court’s executive administrator and will lead the legal staff.
He had been the deputy chief trial counsel and previously served as interim chief trial counsel for 13 months.
Dresser is a former litigation partner at Morrison & Foerster.
State Bar Executive Director Leah Wilson commented:
“In his tenure at the State Bar, Greg Dresser has proven to be an invaluable asset to the functioning of the attorney discipline system. His skills, experience, and leadership abilities will be a significant benefit to the State Bar Court.”
Catherine D. Purcell, presiding judge of the State Bar Court, remarked:
“Mr. Dresser brings an exceptional level of experience and skill to this important position. He has been a partner at a major law firm and, most recently, has served in management positions in the State Bar’s Office of Chief Trial Counsel. The State Bar Court applauds his appointment and looks forward to working with him.”
Dresser replaces Chief Court Counsel Colin Wong, who retired last month.
