EXTENDED BIO

  • At Sharp, Sherman & Engle, Brent primarily practices in litigation. His focus on the real estate industry has given him considerable experience handling a diverse assortment of purchase agreement disputes, disclosure disputes, construction disputes, evictions, and mechanics’ lien claims. Brent has litigated breach of contract, oil and gas leases, premises liability, and general business disputes. When such matters arise, Brent’s clients benefit from his ability to succinctly identify and assess the key legal issues, his creative settlement strategies, and from his honest case assessments. In cases where full-blown litigation is required, his no-nonsense approach minimizes histrionics and maximizes efficiency. Brent is admitted to practice in both Colorado and Arizona.

    Besides civil litigation, Brent advises sport and recreation clients for risk management issues that enable entities to meet or exceed their legal standard of care to their clients. Areas of focus include premises liability, waivers/releases, assumption of risk, indemnification, third-party vendor contracts, policy/procedure manuals, and employee compliance audits. In the event a sport or recreation client is involved in a lawsuit, Brent’s litigation experience allows him to guide the client through the process.

    Brent graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, from Florida State University with a Masters in Sports Management, and from the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law at Arizona State University. While in law school, Brent externed with the Honorable Madeleine C. Wanslee of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Arizona Division, and for the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of the Solicitor.

    Prior to attending law school, Brent owned and managed a 6,000 head commercial cattle operation, trained horses for cutting, cow horse, and roping events, and participated in professional and amateur rodeos in team roping and tie-down roping. When he’s not solving legal issues, Brent can be found riding mountain bikes, playing basketball, skiing, kayaking, and generally spending as much time outdoors as possible.
