Brad is a partner at Gavrilov & Brooks with more than 20 years of experience in complex business litigation.
His commercial litigation practice is primarily focused on real estate-related matters and contract disputes, including landlord-tenant and commercial leasing actions, lender claims, partnership disputes, and short-term rental and zoning/lot-line disputes. He is also well-versed in partition actions, class actions, and Proposition 65 defense, as well as unlawful detainer actions and insurance defense matters. He has participated and prevailed in numerous jury and bench trials and successfully guided countless clients through arbitration, mediation, and informal settlement negotiations. He practices in both State and Federal Court and has argued on multiple occasions before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Brad’s clients range from institutional banks and private equity lenders to start-ups and celebrities. He represents a wide range of emerging and established businesses, law firms, legal and medical professionals, homeowners’ associations, landlords, and affluent individuals. A significant portion of his practice focuses on assisting clients with minimizing risk and limiting potential exposure. When it is not possible to avoid legal action, Brad works closely with his clients to create and implement custom-tailored litigation strategies and solutions.
Before joining Gavrilov & Brooks in 2020, Brad was a partner in two boutique litigation firms in Los Angeles, and prior to that, an associate at one of California’s preeminent real estate “Big Firms.” His recent community service includes serving on the Board of Directors for the La Brea Hancock Homeowners’ Association and as a representative to the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Counsel.
