"Dwight's deep litigation, class action and products practice is well matched with our CPSC experience and related client industries," said John B. Frisch, chairman and chief executive officer of Miles & Stockbridge. "He will work closely with our manufacturing, distribution and retail clients to evaluate risks, respond to issues and resolve matters that can significantly impact a business's reputation and bottom line."

commercial litigation committee and chairs the planning committee for DRI's national 2017 business litigation seminar. He also serves on the executive committee of the Lawyers' Campaign Against Hunger, which raises funds for the Maryland Food Bank.
