Brett Wendt is a partner in the Denver office of Fisher Phillips. He focuses his practice on representing national, regional and local clients in all matters related to business and employment law, and has tried dozens of cases in both federal and state courts.
Brett’s practice encompasses every aspect of employment law: day-to-day counseling, training, administrative agency proceedings, labor and litigation. Due to his ability to immediately evaluate claims and his expertise in defending a broad range of employment-related disputes, employers regularly seek his counsel during all phases of the adversary process, beginning with the receipt of the initial complaint, during the investigative stage, and continuing through trial, if necessary. He routinely works with clients in resolving discrimination, wage and hour class actions (including FLSA collective actions), civil rights, hostile work environment, FMLA, retaliation, noncompetition agreements and wrongful termination matters.
In addition to his 20+ years in private practice, Brett has also served as in-house counsel, most recently as Executive Vice President and General Counsel of a publicly traded company with a portfolio of high quality service providers for the regulated cannabis industry. Additionally, he previously served as Vice President and General Counsel for the nation’s largest underground utility locate company, where he was responsible for managing outside counsel in 26 states with a focus on efficient resolution and litigation avoidance
