You'll never find Brandon waiting and hoping a client won't get indicted. Instead, he looks to actively head off the government's case at the pre-indictment stage so that it never actually moves forward. To do this, he combines an awareness of enforcement agency priorities with deep insight into a client's unique business. The latter is particularly important when defending individuals and companies in the highly regulated health care industry.
For clients that are indicted, Brandon mounts creative and aggressive defenses, often dismantling the government's case before trial. Proof of his effectiveness lies in the fact that he has tried more than 120 jury trials, plus 42 bench trials, and has prevailed in more than 97 percent of them.
Brandon spends significant time consulting on federal investigations. He has defended hospitals, health systems, medical groups and doctors against claims involving the False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law violations as well as defending individuals against a host of fraud and public corruption allegations. He has represented clients before the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Attorney's office, Securities and Exchange Commission, Internal Revenue Service and the Office of Inspector General.
