Brandon Lee Crisp



Brandon Crisp is a litigation attorney in Norton Rose Fulbright's Austin office where his practice focuses primarily on products liability and defense actions concerning medical devices and pharmaceuticals. He currently serves in key roles on several national-coordinating-counsel teams on behalf of global pharmaceutical companies. Through this representation, Brandon has gained extensive experience, especially with e-discovery issues. For example, Brandon has helped clients with the collection, review, and production of domestic and international electronic data, drafting motions for protection related to international e-discovery, and drafting motions for sanctions related to the spoliation of evidence.

Further, in 2012, Brandon was one of only four attorneys selected nationwide to participate in a two-month secondment with the legal department of one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. Through this secondment, he received the unique and invaluable opportunity to work closely with the company's in-house attorneys and gained in-depth exposure to all aspects of the company's business.

Additionally, Brandon has litigated numerous complex commercial litigation matters. These matters have included claims involving breach of contract claims, copyright and patent infringement actions, securities litigation, and real estate disputes. Brandon has also gained extensive trial experience serving as lead prosecutor in numerous jury and bench trials while participating in the firm's attorney-loan program at the Plano Municipal Prosecutor's Office.
