Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Patrick J. Reilly, a well-known litigator in Nevada, will join the firm as a shareholder in its Las Vegas office.
“Pat’s many years as a top litigator in Nevada make him a great fit for our nationally recognized litigation team,” said Eric Burris, Brownstein’s litigation department chair. “His work on complex commercial litigation, consumer protection and appellate matters coupled with his firm leadership experience further strengthens our trial team as we continue to handle high-profile litigation in Nevada.”
With 20 years of experience, Reilly’s background includes a wide range of complex and high-profile cases where he provides clear and effective strategies for clients inside and outside the courtroom. He is a well-regarded appellate practitioner and handles matters before numerous federal and state appellate courts. He also focuses on consumer protection matters including Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) defense in addition to real estate disputes, administrative and regulatory proceedings, shareholder derivative lawsuits, partnership disputes and class action defense. Reilly represents financial institutions, developers, hotels and casinos, utilities and public private partnerships.
Prior to joining Brownstein, Reilly was a partner at Holland & Hart. He received his J.D. from Loyola Law School and his B.A. from University of Southern California.
Reilly adds additional depth to the firm’s Nevada-based litigation department which has added three new shareholders this year including Greg Brower, former assistant director for the office of congressional affairs at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as Sam Schwartz and Frank Flansburg who combined their litigation and bankruptcy firm with Brownstein back in July.
