Brian Martinez’s practice focuses on employment law counseling and litigation.
He has represented clients in federal, state, agency, and arbitral proceedings in cases of varying subject matter.
He advises a range of clients on issues related to employment and technology-related agreements, trade secrets, employee raiding and mobility, employment policies and procedures, reductions in force and terminations, California Labor Code issues, discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, and whistleblower claims. He has successfully obtained favorable resolutions for clients from dismissal with prejudice at the pleading stage to settlements.
With respect to other litigation matters, he has experience advising clients across a broad range of technological fields implicating patent, trade secret, trade dress, and copyright issues.
In addition to successfully presenting arguments at hearings, he has deposition and trial experience, as well as experience with MDL proceedings, working with joint-defense groups, formulating litigation strategy, working with expert and fact witnesses, drafting pre-trial and dispositive motions, and managing case teams, discovery, and overall litigation.
He also maintains an active pro bono practice. For example, he successfully argued for a grant of asylum for a client before the USCIS and has represented Spanish-speaking families seeking special educational services for their children. He also received Congressional recognition for his “tireless advocacy for housing and services on behalf of homeless veterans.”
