As President & Managing Partner of DeWitt, Brad has a unique combination of management and legal skills. He has a keen insight of business operations and corporate responsibilities and understands the importance of the thoughtful management of key capital resources. He is also a skilled business litigator with a knack for knowing when to advise his clients to aggressively pursue their interests and when to step back and re-evaluate their approach to a problem.
The majority of his practice is focused on representing businesses with labor and employment, construction and general commercial litigation matters. He has successfully litigated cases throughout the country on matters ranging from class action wage and hour litigation to insurance coverage and construction defect litigation.
Brad’s labor and employment practice runs the gamut from handling “soft” employment issues such as hiring, firing and discrimination matters, to “hard” labor issues such as union avoidance, union organizing campaigns and elections, collective bargaining and arbitrating grievances. He has extensive experience drafting and litigating the enforceability of non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.
Within the construction industry, he works with contractors, owners and developers in drafting and negotiating contracts and juggling the myriad of challenges that inevitably arise during the course of a project, as well as managing all forms of dispute resolution. His commercial litigation practice has allowed him the opportunity to assist businesses in resolving a complex array of issues many companies face, such as contract disputes, insurance coverage, and shareholder/partnership disputes.
Brad first became involved with firm management in 2005 when he was elected to serve on its Executive Committee. He has also served as the firm’s Corporate Secretary, as well as its Equal Employment Opportunity Officer. Currently, as its President and Managing Partner, helping to manage the largest law firm in Madison has provided him with invaluable insight and experience which makes him a solid and skilled advocate for his clients’ best interests.
In his free time, he spends as much time as he can with his family, including coaching youth sports and vacationing with his wife and their four children. When his family has had enough of him, he can be found on the golf course.
