Brian Featherstun is an associate in the Employment Law practice of Paul Hastings and is based in the firm’s San Francisco office. His practice spans a wide variety of practice areas, with a particular emphasis on complex litigation and employment matters. Mr. Featherstun focuses on developing efficient, cost-effective, and jury-friendly strategies on matters ranging from routine business disputes to “bet the company” litigation.
A veteran of numerous trial teams, Mr. Featherstun is frequently asked to step into a case on the eve of trial as the lead associate on a matter. He has successfully handled first and second chair responsibility for trials, hearings, depositions, and administrative proceedings, delivered opening statements and closing arguments, examined fact and expert witnesses, and argued motions. Mr. Featherstun has also authored briefs that have achieved successful early dismissal with prejudice (including in cases raising novel, first-of-their-kind allegations), obtained summary judgment, opposed class certification, and defended final judgments on appeal. He places an emphasis on evaluating each case from the jury’s perspective to realistically assess a case’s strengths and weaknesses, and has used that insight to help clients reach resolution at all stages of the litigation process.
