TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 14, 2016) — David Brickhouse, an associate in Broad and Cassel’s Tampa office, has been honored with a 2016 Up and Comers Award from the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
The annual award recognizes future leaders and innovators in the business community who are under 40 years of age. Honorees are recognized in two categories – Under 30 and Under 40. Brickhouse is among those honored under 30.
A rising star within the firm and the community, Brickhouse is a member of Broad and Cassel’s Corporate and Securities, Banking and Institutional Lending, Public Finance and Capital Projects, and Commercial Litigation Practice Groups. His practice serves clients in a broad range of industries, including investment banking, financial services, transportation and infrastructure, education, software development, utilities, real estate, healthcare, insurance and PEO and employer leasing.
Notably, Brickhouse has been a member of the team which advised on more than $2 billion in public finance transactions, including the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority first-ever bond issuance. He also is active in local community organizations and professional associations and serves on various committees with the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and the University of Tampa Board of Counselors.
The Up and Comers Award is the latest recognition for Brickhouse, as he was honored this summer as a 2016 Florida Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine.
Brickhouse holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida (USF) and earned his juris doctor from Stetson University College of Law. While attending USF, he served as co-chair of the Academic Integrity Committee, a representative group of students, faculty and administrators charged with creating a policy statement on academic integrity. As a result of his efforts, he presented the Commitment to Honor to the Faculty Senate, Student Government and regional campus executives before finally presenting it to the Board of Trustees, which formally adopted it in 2007.
