Hello, I'm Carl Steinbrenner.

With over 30 years of corporate and business legal experience, I have represented business owners and executives in almost every industry and ranging in size from local start-up companies to international Fortune 100 corporations. I am admitted to practice law in New York, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois and in federal district court and federal bankruptcy court.

Prior to founding Steinbrenner Law Offices in 2001...

I was an attorney with one of the largest Western New York law firms focusing on business and corporate matters and transactions. I was also corporate counsel in the law departments of Bausch & Lomb Incorporated and Owens-Illinois, Inc., both global corporations operating throughout the United States and the world.

My earlier experience includes business management positions as President of Seagate Alliance LLC, a regional healthcare purchasing organization and Director of Contracting at the University of Rochester.

I received my Juris Doctor legal degree from the University of Notre Dame and my undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois. I am also a graduate of Salzburg College in Austria and the Goethe Institut in Germany.

A little more about me.

I am appointed by the Rochester City Council to its Ethics Board and currently serve as its chair.  I also serve on the Board of Lifetime Assistance Foundation, Inc. and on its Development Committee.  I am one of the founders of First Wednesdays of Rochester, Inc. and serve on its Board of Directors and as Secretary.  I am also active with the Notre Dame Club of Rochester, the Rochester German community and German School of Rochester, the Brighton Chamber of Commerce, and the Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce.

Those who are familiar with me know I am an ardent Notre Dame football and Buffalo Sabres fan.  I can often be found attending RIT hockey games each fall and winter and watching World Cup soccer every four years.
