Brown Rudnick Holding Annual \”Red Wine Night\’\’ Thursday In Hartford

by Categorized: Brown Rudnick, Larry Cafero, Tom Ritter Date:

Brown Rudnick, a lobbying and law firm with close ties at the state Capitol, is holding its annual \”Red Wine Night\’\’ on Thursday in Hartford.

The night has become a tradition on the Capitol calendar. The official legislative bulletin says that the night \”is in compliance with Connecticut ethics laws C.G.S. Section 1 – 91 (G) (10).\’\’

The event dates all the way back to the days when Thomas D. Ritter was the House Speaker for six years in the early to mid-1990s, and the wine nights became well-known in the House Democratic caucus room. Today, Ritter is a partner at Brown Rudnick, as is House Republican leader Larry Cafero of Norwalk.
