Prior to joining the firm, Brad Deutsch served for eight years as Chief of Staff and Senior Legal Advisor to Commissioner Steven T. Walther at the Federal Election Commission, where he had previously served as Assistant General Counsel.

At Garvey Schubert Barer, Brad Deutsch will provide strategic advice to candidates, political committees, corporations and trade associations in all areas of Federal and State Political and Election Law.
Brad Deutsch’s practice will also focus on broadcast station transactions and regulations before the Federal Communications Commission, where he previously served as Special Assistant to the Chief of the Mass Media Bureau and as a Supervisory Attorney.

Brad Deutsch stated, “I am thrilled to be joining the brilliant, cohesive and collegial team of attorneys at GSB. I look forward to assisting our clients as we navigate the unpredictable and all too often counter-intuitive road that has been paved by recent turbulent changes in the law.”
