David Bruening - Elliott & Davis

Dave Bruening is a seasoned business attorney who specializes in serving as strategic counsel for both established businesses and start-ups, often operating as “outside” in-house counsel. He has guided businesses through early, formative stages — assisting a large number of entrepreneurs to establish legal entities — as well as through later-stage complex decisions and business issues. Working with a business c-suite, Dave, as in-house legal counsel and part of the legal team, strategically grew the organization, which was eventually acquired for over $100MM.

Dave’s breadth of legal knowledge and experience makes him an especially agile lawyer. Throughout his nearly two decades in practice, he has tackled a broad range of telecommunications issues, real estate and leasing transactions, including commercial real estate asset leasing for telecommunications and renewable energy, estate planning cases, technology licensing, complex corporate formations and management issues, all manner of contract matters and a wide variety of corporate transactions. Additionally, he has deep knowledge of and experience with land management and zoning cases, having represented numerous clients in front of local governing boards.

Dave is a Pittsburgh native who enjoys being outdoors, traveling, reading, and investing in and redeveloping real estate.
