Described by The American Lawyer as "a takeover and defense specialist" who is "no stranger to billion-dollar deals," Brand was named a New York “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers magazine each year from 2011 to 2017 for his corporate practice. He is a member of the advisory board of The Harvard Law School's Program on Corporate Governance, and in 2016 was recognized by Columbia Law School’s Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership as a Rising Star of Corporate Governance.
