Elizabeth Brandon litigates and tries complex commercial disputes. She offers a proven ability to identify and analyze complicated facts, issues and legal principles — and distill them into concise, logical and persuasive arguments when presented to opposing counsel, judges and juries. Elizabeth is at her best when stakes are high, pressure is intense, time is limited and simplicity is needed.
An exacting and focused litigator who is objective and balanced even in the face of relentless acrimony, Elizabeth takes the time to ensure her clients understand the litigation process and their options. Elizabeth’s no-surprises communication style and immutable commitment to protecting her clients' positions help her to identify opportunities for favorable settlement whenever possible. In the event an acceptable resolution cannot be achieved, Elizabeth’s well-planned, practical legal arguments have proven effective in the event trial should ensue.
Elizabeth has represented individual and business clients in state and federal courts in Texas, California, Delaware, New York and other jurisdictions, including before arbitration tribunals. Her clients have included issuers, directors and officers in securities fraud class actions and litigation arising out of mergers and acquisitions, insider trading, class actions, earn-out, post-closing adjustment and breach of warranty disputes, breach of contract, fiduciary duty, unfair competition and tortious interference with contract, oil and gas litigation, regulatory compliance and related investigations.
Notably, Elizabeth’s industry experience is also broad and includes legal, consulting, insurance, data processing, technology, oil and gas, electric utilities, food and beverage, healthcare, entertainment, advertising, telecommunications, computer, travel, manufacturing, construction, private equity and hedge funds. The common denominator throughout Elizabeth’s representation is that she is depended upon to bring order and direction to big, challenging and acrimonious cases.
