Brian Moore

Attorney in Denver, CO


Mr. Moore’s practice has focused on commercial litigation and employment-related matters since his admission to the Colorado bar in 1997. His litigation experience is notable for its breadth; examples include successful representation of clients in disputes arising out of commercial real estate transactions, catastrophic torts (including cases with seven- and eight-figure economic losses), interference with contract, and partnership disputes.

Mr. Moore’s employment practice includes representing individuals and employers ranging from start-up firms concerned with issues of basic compliance to Fortune 500 companies facing significant litigation threats. As general outside employment counsel he has frequently drafted handbooks and policies, executive contracts, and a variety of other employment-related agreements, advised on all manner of personnel decisions, and generally assisted clients with minimizing the risk of costly litigation and administrative proceedings. Unusual among employment attorneys, Mr. Moore regularly represents employees as well as employers. This has most often included plaintiffs with breach of contract, sexual harassment, and retaliation claims, as well as defending employees against claims for violation of covenants not to compete. In addition, he has frequently advised both employees and employers regarding the enforcement and drafting of executive employment agreements and restrictive covenants, and has worked frequently with physicians in negotiating employment, shareholder, and separation agreements.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
