Brian concentrates his practice on corporate, securities, private equity and other transactional matters. He represents both private and public domestic and international companies in a wide range of business transactions, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, complex commercial contracts and supply chain management.

Brian devotes a portion of his practice to working with fellow McGuireWoods attorneys in the private equity and energy and climate change industry groups to provide investors and companies with an integrated, inter-disciplinary, full service, legal “partnership” in connection with various matters, deals, investments, financings and projects focused on clean power, greentech, energy efficiency and sustainable infrastructure investment, operation, development and growth.
