Peter Brown has been involved in all areas of Liebert Cassidy Whitmore's practice since 1989, representing public agencies in litigation, collective bargaining negotiations and many different types of administrative hearings. Peter has a unique talent in promptly developing an expertise in most of the laws which impact our public agency clients such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family Medical Leave Acts, and the state labor relations laws. Many of the firm's clients have come to rely on his advice in guiding them in these constantly changing areas of law.
Peter has also distinguished himself as a sought-after speaker, author and trainer on topics that impact our firm's clients. He speaks at numerous conferences throughout the state of California and nationally on public sector labor and employment law topics.
Peter is one of the most prolific and popular presenters in the firm's renowned training activities. Although Peter spends much of his time out of the office in labor negotiations, at City Council and Board meetings and in workshops or conference presentations, he finds that the most enjoyable part of the practice of public sector labor and employment law is advising clients how to resolve day-to-day problems. "Helping people resolve a difficult problem is very gratifying. It is why I went to law school." "I want the client to not only know the answer, but specifically what the law says. I show them the law. Most people are visual."
Peter is the Chair of the firm’s Labor Relations Practice Group. As Chair, Peter is responsible for developing both internal training for the attorneys on labor relations as well as external training to the firm’s clients on the latest developments in labor relations.
Peter has also published numerous articles and has authored the CPER pocket guide to the Family and Medical Care Leave Acts since 1997.
