Brian T. Horan

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Cain Hibbard & Myers PC has hired attorney Brian T. Horan, a former counsel for New York City.  

At Cain Hibbard, Horan will leverage his experience to benefit the firm's clients in commercial and employment disputes, government investigations, and other matters. 

"Brian is an expert litigator and respected counselor who will help Cain Hibbard grow its thriving litigation and business counseling practice, including in the construction, health law, insurance, and intellectual property fields," Managing Partner Lucy Prashker said.

Horan worked in New York City's Office of the Corporation Counsel, where he established himself as an accomplished, creative litigator in cases spanning areas including real estate, health care, telecommunications, construction, finance, insurance, and intellectual property, according to Cain Hibbard. 

He served as lead counsel in cases against major domestic and international companies for breach of contract, fraud, False Claims Act violations, and other theories. He also litigated cases involving trademark and copyright infringement, insurance coverage disputes, debtor-creditor issues, and arbitrary and capricious government action. 

Horan was recognized as a 40-under-40 "Rising Star" by the New York Law Journal in 2018. In its profile, the Law Journal wrote, "Brian has been a leader in shaping the office's practice in areas including false claims litigation, judgment enforcement, and statutory claims against companies that violate laws designed to protect public health and safety and the City's quality of life."

"Brian is an exceptionally talented lawyer whose deep understanding of both sophisticated commercial transactions and government regulation will be a tremendous asset to Cain Hibbard's clients," said Diane DeGiacomo, partner and chair of the firm's litigation department. "We are thrilled to welcome him to the firm."

Horan received his bachelor's degree from Columbia University and his juris doctorate from New York University School of Law. He lives in Great Barrington with his wife, Annie Maurer, who recently joined Community Legal Aid as a staff attorney, and their two children.
