Drawing on two decades of courtroom experience, he handles a broad spectrum of litigation, including products liability, food and beverage liability claims, asbestos and other toxic tort litigation, pharmaceutical and medical device claims and environmental litigation. He is accomplished in the defense of both conventional and novel claims, including those involving per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Brian also focuses his practice on trucking claims, general liability issues and business disputes for clients across the United States. Whether he is trying an individual case or managing national litigation, clients trust Brian to keep their best interests firmly in his sights.
Brian believes success in litigation is ultimately defined by his client’s needs. He invests time to understand your business, industry and values, and to develop defense strategies tailored to your priorities, and minimize the impact on your business reputation, resources, and operations. A consummate strategist, Brian aggressively investigates opposing allegations and witnesses, often unearthing information that weakens plaintiffs’ claims and lowers resolution costs.
As National Coordinating Counsel for several companies, Brian develops defense themes, prepares expert and corporate witnesses, selects and manages local counsel, tries cases, and handles settlement negotiations. As a result of these efforts, many of his clients have experienced a decrease in the defense and indemnity costs associated with their defense.
