Brandon Wise works in the St. Louis, Missouri office of the firm. His practice is focused on all types of class and mass cases, with many arising from employees’ rights issues. These issues can include unpaid or underpaid minimum wage or overtime, age, sex, race, or other discrimination in the workplace, wrongful termination, and other employees’ rights statutes, such as the WARN Act. Prior to joining the firm, Brandon ran his own solo law practice focusing on the same types of cases.
Recently, Brandon prevailed on a motion to dismiss in a WARN Act case, Carver v. Foresight Energy LP, et al., and obtained the first reported court decision on the WARN Act’s “natural disaster” exemption.
Brandon attended St. Louis University School of Law, concentrated in Civil Litigation, won Best Appellant’s Brief in the Giles S. Rich Intellectual Property Moot Court Competition, and graduated with honors. Brandon resides in the metro-St. Louis area with his wife and two children.
