Overview

Brandon focuses his practice on mass tort, product liability and commercial litigation.

Brandon has extensive experience in personal injury litigation related to petrochemicals, agricultural chemicals and construction materials. He has defended single plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and class action lawsuits in both state and federal court. With his experience, Brandon knows the importance of avoiding litigation and resolving cases quickly.

By strategically allocating resources, Brandon helps clients avoid risks associated with some of the most dangerous aspects of litigation, such as class certification and high-risk discovery. For example, in a lawsuit alleging consumer fraud, Brandon and other Husch Blackwell attorneys were able to successfully defeat a putative nationwide class action with early fact investigation and dispositive motion practice.

Brandon is also trusted to protect his clients in product failure investigations. Brandon has experience counseling clients in all aspects of product failure investigations, especially those related to catastrophic events such as fires and explosions. And when litigation is necessary, Brandon has successfully protected his clients. In a federal lawsuit involving a residential fire, Brandon and other Husch Blackwell attorneys were not only successful in obtaining a jury verdict for their client, but also succeeded in countersuing the plaintiff for attorney’s fees.

During law school, Brandon was a summer associate at Husch Blackwell. Brandon previously interned in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois under the Hon. Colin Bruce, the Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of Illinois.

Before attending law school, Brandon served five years in the U.S. Marine Corps as a linguist and led an intelligence collection team during two deployments in Afghanistan.
