Mr. Brand has engaged in full time dispute resolution since 1983. A former negotiator and law professor, he has a varied national practice, ranging from arbitrating high profile individual disputes -- such as hockey player Petr Nedved’s eligibility to play in the IHL, to mediating high stakes public disputes – including the nation’s first “pay for performance” contract in the Denver City School District.
Mr. Brand has arbitrated and mediated cases involving complex issues of law and large dollar amounts. His largest arbitration award resulted in payments of approximately $40 million. He served as sole arbitrator in a $50 million biotech case, and in many multi-million dollar pension cases. He has mediated multi-party disputes, including the model annual maintenance agreement for the Sacramento Delta, wage rates on the Bay Bridge construction project, and wage and hour class actions. He mediates and arbitrates executive compensation, ERISA, MPPAA, discrimination, statutory, and wrongful termination disputes involving Fortune 500 companies.
Mr. Brand is a Governor of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, a Fellow of the American College of Employee Benefit Counsel, a Fellow of the American College of Civil Trial Mediators, past President of the California Dispute Resolution Council, a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators, a Diplomate of the California Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, and a panelist for ADR Services, Inc.
