Todd is the one in the hat.
Charles Moster is an MLP consultant on Law Firm Partner and Corporate Counsel hiring issues. A Principal and Founder of The Moster Law Firm, a general practice firm based in Lubbock Texas (www.themosterlawfirm.com), and Co-Founder and Litigation Chair Emeritus of Moster Wynne Ressler, a highly regarded Austin, Texas law firm specializing in corporate strategic, transactional and litigation matters (www.mosterwynne.com), he brings a diverse legal and recruitment background to the table.
Charles is a 1984 graduate of Temple University Law School. He holds a BA from Georgetown University and an MA from the University of San Diego. He began his career with the General Counsel's Office of the U.S. Commerce Department, where he represented the government on numerous precedent-setting cases, and was a recipient of the U.S. Department of Treasury Certificate of Award for Distinction in Credit Management (1989), one of the highest awards offered by the federal government.
He went on to become a Founding Partner of Moster Wynne, where he oversees the firm's legal work and advises clients on risk management and litigation avoidance strategies. Before entering the legal profession, Charles was a top recruiter with a well-respected regional recruitment firm.
