Patrick recently appointed Mullan to serve on the University of Massachusetts board of trustees. A Worcester native, Mullan is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts and Suffolk University Law School.
Mullan is the latest addition to Foley Hoag. On Sept. 1, John Ruggie, the former U.N. Secretary-General's Special Representative on Business and Human Rights and a current Harvard University professor, joined Foley Hoag in Boston as a senior advisor in the Corporate Social Responsibility Practice. Ruggie authored the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, which the U.N. Human Rights Council formally endorsed in June after six years of development. During the summer, Foley Hoag opened an office in Paris, adding international litigation and arbitration partners Bruno Leurent and Thomas Bevilacqua, counsel Hery Frederic Ranjeva, and associates Ivan Urzhumov and Carlos Arrue Montenegro.
