Biography

George Brown is an experienced litigator who concentrates in construction litigation, subrogation law, employment law, and complex business litigation. His clients include individuals, entrepreneurial businesses, and Fortune 100 companies. Consistently recognized as one of the region's leading construction lawyers, George has particular experience representing national homebuilders in litigation involving construction defects, contract, warranty, and real estate disputes. He tries cases in both federal and Maryland state courts, and in arbitration proceedings, including before the American Arbitration Association and JAMS.

An accomplished subrogation lawyer, George's record of favorable verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients involved in complex property damage cases resulting from fires, structural defects, and mechanical failures is consistently among the most distinguished in the Mid-Atlantic region.

A leader, author, and speaker on the fundamentals of employment law, George proactively advises clients on management issues regarding hiring and termination, EEOC claims, wrongful discharge, employee handbooks, record-keeping procedures, grievance arbitrations, trade secrets and non-competition/non-solicitation agreements, intellectual property protection, and employee leave and disability. George works with clients on risk assessment and strategies for avoiding or minimizing litigation. When litigation arises, he represents employers in matters concerning discrimination, harassment, ADEA, ADA, FMLA, wage claims, and restrictive covenants.

George served honorably in the U.S. Army from 1982 until 1989 and is an active supporter of various veteran and wounded warrior projects. As an avid recreational fisherman and boater, George promotes the Chesapeake Bay through his active support of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association and the Coastal Conservation Association.

Representative Matters

Recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of an international software and information technology client. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleged in various causes of action that the client breached its compensation agreement and therefore owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in past commission. In the District Court in Utah, established that the client was not in breach of the agreement and therefore did not owe the plaintiff the claimed damages. In granting the client's motion, the Court entered summary judgment against the plaintiff's claims with prejudice.
