Brennan is a brilliant attorney with a wide range of litigation experience, including high-stakes white collar criminal defense matters. He combines the intellectually curious, cerebral approach of the academic with the hard-nosed, strategic and bottom-line oriented approach of the experienced litigator. He also has a wonderful sense of humor and is a pleasure to work with and to be around.

Brennan is an excellent lawyer who brings passion and creativity to his practice. He is knowledgeable about GSK's legal environment and he brings creative ideas to the table to improve that environment. He has substantial litigation experience and he is able to draw on that experience when dispensing advice. Brennan pays attention to the details and, as outside counsel working under his direction, I know that he will not accept anything other than excellent work product.

Brennan is one of the finest lawyers I have ever had the pleasure to know and work with. His knowledge, skills and judgment are superb and he has an absolutely prodigious work ethic. When he was in private practice, clients trusted him with their most important and difficult assignments. As an in-house attorney at GSK, he now handles some of the company's most sensitive legal issues.
