He also counsels his clients on a wide range of employment-related issues, including protection of trade secrets, employee mobility, hiring and terminating employees, wage and hour compliance, worker classification, harassment, discrimination, leaves of absence, and reductions in force, among others. He conducts workplace investigations for employers and performs nondiscrimination and nonharassment training for management personnel. 

As part of his counseling practice, Brandon drafts and reviews proprietary information agreements, offer letters, employment agreements, executive agreements, independent contractor agreements, and personnel policies to ensure compliance with and maximum protection under the law. For clients involved in mergers, acquisitions, or capital financing, he provides counsel with respect to the protection of trade secrets, noncompetition and employment-related issues, to make sure these issues do not adversely impact the business transaction.
