As a barred attorney, Brian leverages his experiences in the courtroom with his ability to understand complex legal concepts to provide a more complete, supportive experience for his clients. He not only recognizes the importance of technical proficiency in putting on the best case, but also how all the pieces fit together to create a persuasive and compelling narrative.
Over the past 6 years, Brian has supported trial teams on a myriad of different cases, including contract disputes, intellectual property, environmental, securities, and more. Notably, Brian has served as lead trial technology consultant on behalf of Plexxikon in their patent infringement suit against Novartis Pharmaceuticals which resulted in a $178 million jury verdict in favor of his client.
More recently, Brian was a lead consultant in an environmental cost recovery lawsuit in cooperation with the Morgan Lewis trial team, which resulted in a unanimous $133 million jury verdict on behalf of the client. The verdict was also recognized by the Daily Journal as one of the Top Verdicts of 2022.
Brian has also proudly led a pro bono matter for Flores v. Town of Islip, where the settlement has replaced an at-large council election system with single-member districts, paving the way for the first Latino representative on the board in the town’s history.
Before joining the Impact team, Brian attended law school in Philadelphia with a concentration in civil litigation. Having spent time assisting both plaintiff’s and defense attorneys (as well as clerking for a civil supreme court judge), Brian offers unique insight into complicated legal processes and the technology needed to find necessary solutions for navigating through them.
If you can’t find Brian in the Impact offices, you will probably find him: exploring and taking film photos, nestled in the “sweet spot” of his stereo, or building mechanical keyboards.
