Mr. Tim Broas, a distinguished member of the litigation department of Winston & Strawn, LLP, Washington, DC, has a career focus on white collar crime, securities litigation, and congressional investigations. His legal acumen fits him to function ably in these areas of law violations. All are serious, but white collar crime, a growing and costly problem, in particular requires someone of great legal skill.
In addition to his highly regarded work at Winston and Strawn, Mr. Broas also serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s College of Maryland in St. Mary’s City, Maryland. The Board of Trustees is the governing body of St. Mary’s. By a 1992 charter, the Board of Trustees has control over governance and policies of the college. Additionally, the Board of Trustees selects the president of St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
The board is made up of twenty-six trustees, twenty-three of whom are appointed by the Governor of Maryland. Mr. Broas is one of that group. This is an important post at St. Mary’s College as the Board of Trustees has responsibility for administrative, academic, and financial affairs of the institution to ensure that its historic past is preserved as it moves into the future.
As a member of the Board, Mr. Broas was selected to serve on the Finance, Investment, and Audit Committee. His education and legal career make him eminently suited to serve on this committee.
St. Mary’s College of Maryland is a high-quality public, secular, liberal arts school with a Baccalaureate program. A core curriculum stresses developing in its graduates skills in “critical thinking, written expression, oral expression, and information literacy.”
Mr. Broas’s own education background suits him well in serving at St. Mary’s: a magna cum laude graduate in economics and history from Boston College (1976) and graduate of the college of William and Mary, J. D. (1979). He has a high comfort level in serving at a liberal arts school and a true understanding of developing and adapting new education concepts while preserving its treasured historic past as it moves forward.
An interest in architecture, particularly that of New York City, his former home, inspired him to write a finely done post on New York City’s architectural heritage. The post can be found online.
Mr. Broas currently lives with his wife and family in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
