In more than 20 years of practice, Brad has represented businesses and individuals in many different areas.

Helping Small Businesses. Brad spends a lot of time working with small business owners. He has developed expertise in the areas of law that are important to small businesses. He helps business owners decide the structure of their businesses, whether corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), or something else. Businesses often have legal issues related to their employees, and so Brad has developed expertise in that area. And because legal disputes can happen, Brad can help his business clients prosecute and defend lawsuits. Brad’s clients turn to him for litigation as well as commercial matters.

Litigation. Brad has represented clients at every level in Arizona—everything from head counsel in multi-week jury trials in Superior Court to appellate counsel at the Arizona Supreme Court. Brad has also represented clients before Justice Courts, administrative tribunals such as the Office of Administrative Hearings, and many arbitrations and mediations. Brad has even served as a private arbitrator, where he has ruled on lawsuits brought by other lawyers.

Negotiating Contracts. Brad helps his clients draft and negotiate all kinds of contracts—partnership agreements, commercial leases, employment contracts, asset purchase agreements, settlement agreements, and much more. Brad also helps his clients collect their money if bills go unpaid.

Franchising Law. Brad helps clients who are involved in franchising—whether as franchisors or franchisees. Brad helps clients with the complicated process of drafting the franchise disclosure documents that are required by federal law, as well as registering under the franchise and business opportunity laws of various states. For many years he has been a member of the Franchise Forum of the American Bar Association.
