Brian Frutig represents victims of international terrorism and human rights violations as part of Motley Rice's Anti-Terrorism and Human Rights practice group. He assists with the firm's groundbreaking litigation against the financiers of al Qaeda on behalf of 6,500 family members and survivors of the September 11, 2001, attacks. Brian also litigates cases involving the Anti-Terrorism Act, the Alien Tort Claims Act, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and international humanitarian law in U.S. courts.
As a law student, Brian gained international law experience as a legal assistant at the Association of Defense Counsel practicing at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. In this role, he conducted legal research on international law, compiled witness summaries, and prepared exhibits on sensitive materials, including military and tactical information of the Yugoslav/Serbian military, the Kosovo Liberation Army and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Brian combines his legal experience with his graduate degree in international conflict analysis, where he studied international criminal law and the impact of international criminal tribunals on post-conflict redevelopment, particularly in Sierra Leone.
Brian uses his extensive background in global sales and marketing research and consulting to support the Motley Rice Securities and Consumer Fraud practice group. During his time at MarketBridge Corporation, an international sales and marketing professional services firm, Brian conducted research in finance, hi-tech and telecommunications industries and developed corporate planning and strategy programs for Fortune 500 clients while working out of the company's Bethesda, Maryland, and London, England, offices. His work included developing complex strategic change programs, market evaluations, budgeting processes and marketing strategies.
