CSPI Announces Resignation of Long-time Legal Affairs Director Bruce A. Silverglade


WASHINGTON—The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest is announcing with regret the resignation of Bruce A. Silverglade, who has served as CSPI’s director of legal affairs for more than 25 years. Mr. Silverglade will be joining the Washington, D.C., law firm of Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Bode Matz PC as a principal on November 1, 2010.

“I greatly enjoyed working at CSPI, and it is difficult to say goodbye to long-time friends and colleagues, but it is now time to turn my career in a new direction,” Silverglade said. 

“Bruce has demonstrated extraordinary persistence in fighting to protect consumers from inadequate and deceptive food labeling and advertising,” said CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson. “And he has become a recognized expert on cross-border regulatory and trade issues affecting the food industry. Speaking on behalf of everyone at CSPI, I wish Bruce well in this new phase of his career.”

Silverglade added, “I think that my experience finding solutions to complex public policy problems by working with government officials, industry leaders, and consumer groups fits well with Olsson Frank Weeda’s approach to proactively engaging government officials and using both conventional and creative approaches to advance the public policy process.”
