Brian's primary work is helping privately-owned businesses avoid and, if necessary, defend against employment practices violations and lawsuits, and protect the competitive edge those businesses have gained through hard work and sacrifice. Brian handles the whole spectrum of employment and trade secret law: employment agreements, non-compete agreements, trade secret protection, employment policies, employee handbooks, executive compensation, employee recruiting and job placement, employee counseling, negotiation of severance agreements, non-litigated resolution of employment disputes, and trials and appeals of employment and trade secret disputes.

Brian also handles disputes involving business transactions, business ownership, personal injury, construction (particularly mechanic's liens, lien enforcement, and general contractor and subcontractor issues), and environmental matters.

In past practice, Brian represented amateur (high school and college age) and professional athletes in negotiating and enforcing player and endorsement contracts and has more recently pursued agent malpractice and professional liability claims for negligently negotiated agreements that damaged professional athletes and their earning potential. Brian has also assisted a number of professional athletes in creating and operating charitable foundations and non-profit organizations.
