New Partner Spotlight-Brandon Crainer

Fraser Stryker attorney Brandon J. Crainer was elected to partner on January 1, 2021.  Graduating from Creighton University School of Law, Brandon spent his first three years after graduation as a law clerk to the Honorable Thomas D. Thalken, United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Nebraska.

Admitted to practice in Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota, Brandon practices complex litigation in both federal and state courts throughout the Midwest. Brandon’s practice focuses in employment law, including providing counsel to employees and employers regarding discrimination and harassment claims, employment agreements, including non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, state and federal wage and hour laws, agency investigations, employment policies, and handbooks, and related litigation.  In addition to maintaining an employment law practice, Brandon handles class action defense matters, commercial disputes, insurance defense, and trucking litigation. Brandon aims to work toward solutions that best meet the client’s immediate and long-term goals. Brandon will work closely with a client throughout all stages of representation in order to be a valued resource and partner to clients.

Brandon says: “I am focused on providing prompt expert legal advice that matches my clients’ needs.  In many instances, my clients present issues that do not have a clear answer or easy path toward resolution.  However, I am here to develop and obtain any type of solution that protects my clients’ interests.”

Outside of the office, Brandon spends time with his family playing soccer, golfing, and cycling. Brandon is active in soccer leagues throughout the year and hopes to sneak in several more seasons before retirement from the pitch. On weekend mornings, Brandon can be found toiling away at the golf course with his two sons.
