Brett is a key member of the firm's admiralty law team, helping brown-water and blue-water operators and others with maritime claims and policy-holder insurance litigation. As Brett describes it, "I regularly defend or prosecute claims - whether as lead counsel or as a member of a team - involving vessel, platform, shipyard or port accidents with multiple parties and complex intersections of state and federal law."
"I'm also often on teams investigating maritime accidents. Thanks to my naval experience, I know how to locate, use and question experts as well as read and interpret radar and other technical data myself."
Brett's technical expertise came into play, for example, in his work on the BP spill and for post-Katrina damage claims.
