T. Andrew Brown is resigning from his position as corporation counsel for the city of Rochester to return to private practice, Mayor Lovely A. Warren announced Friday.

Brown’s last day will be July 10, at which point Deputy Corporation Counsel Brian Curran will take over as interim corporation counsel.

It is Warren’s intention to submit her appointment of Curran as the city’s permanent corporation counsel to City Council for approval.

“I want to thank Andrew Brown for his exemplary service to the Rochester community for the last year-and-a-half,” she said. “He helped the city recover substantial amounts of uncollected revenue during his tenure and has positioned the office to continue serving the city’s legal needs at a high level. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

A city councilmember from 1994 to 2005 and deputy Monroe County executive from 1988 to 1991, Curran brings 31 years of legal experience to the mayor’s senior administrative team. He currently prepares the city’s legislation for City Council action, advises city departments on a wide range of municipal law and other issues and assists in the management of the Law Department.

Prior to returning to City Hall in 2014 to serve as deputy corporation counsel, Curran was legislative director and counsel for SEIU Local 200 United and the New York State Public Employees Federation.
