Brad specializes in Delaware corporate law and represents clients in a variety of areas, including corporate and commercial litigation in the Delaware Court of Chancery where he began his legal career as a judicial law clerk.  In addition to his litigation practice, Brad frequently advises directors and special committees on internal investigations, corporate governance, and transactional issues. 

Chambers USA has repeatedly named Brad as a recognized Court of Chancery practitioner.  Most recently, Chambers USA 2015 described Brad as a “‘top-notch attorney’” and specifically noted his “active Chancery practice” and “frequent” work for “directors and special committees.”  Chambers has also acknowledged Brad as "attract[ing] praise from observers as a ‘diligent and smart’ attorney with a strong focus in corporate law."  

Brad has represented clients in many of Delaware’s marquee corporate cases in recent years, including In re Zale Corporation Stockholders Litigation; In re Kinder Morgan, Inc. Corporate Reorganization; The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. v. Wildrick; In re Complete Genomics, Inc. Shareholder Litigation; In re El Paso Shareholders Litigation; and In re CNX Gas Corp.

Brad frequently speaks and writes on Delaware corporate law issues.  In August, Brad will be a panelist on PLI's Delaware Law Developments 2016: What All Business Lawyers Need to Know seminar in New York.  He has also spoken on Delaware law and M&A panels sponsored by the Corporate Law Section of the Delaware State Bar Association and the Business Law Section of the ABA.  As listed below, Brad has additionally published articles in, among other publications, The Business Lawyer; Deal Points; The Delaware Law Review; Insights and The M&A Lawyer

Brad also served as Co-Vice Chair of the ABA Task Force that delivered a report to Congress and the SEC on the delineation of governance roles and responsibilities of stockholders and directors in light of the then unraveling 2008 financial crisis. 

Following his clerkship, Brad practiced for five years at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP in the firm's Securities and Corporate Governance Litigation Group in New York before returning to Delaware and becoming a founding partner of the firm.
