Corey Brady is a senior associate in Weil’s Appeals and Strategic Counseling and Complex Commercial Litigation practices. A former judicial clerk in the Eleventh Circuit, Corey has extensive experience briefing high-stakes legal issues and litigating in courts around the country.
Corey assists major companies in addressing some of their most complex and important issues, both on appeal and before trial courts. He has drafted many appellate briefs and dispositive motions, taken and defended key depositions, worked with experts in a range of subject matters (including economics, engineering, and utilities), and counseled clients in disputes at every level of the federal courts.
Corey’s notable appellate work includes briefing a Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act case before the U.S. Supreme Court, resulting in a unanimous opinion in the client’s favor. He also assisted drafting a Supreme Court amicus brief in the high-profile Trump v. Mazars case.
Other notable experience includes serving on Weil teams:
- Representing Dometic, a major manufacturer of equipment for recreational vehicles, in securing repeated victories in nationwide products liability class actions. Most recently, Corey drafted Daubert briefs and cross-examined the plaintiffs’ damages expert, resulting in total exclusion of that expert’s opinions. Plaintiffs subsequently withdrew their class certification motion.
- Counseling National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation, a bond insurer, in connection with Puerto Rico’s bankruptcy proceedings, particularly that of the public utility company, PREPA.
- Defending Johnson & Johnson in a multi-plaintiff products liability trial involving allegations of contaminated talcum powder products.
- Representing Pilgrim’s Pride in a series of federal antitrust class actions, which alleged that the country’s major chicken producers restricted output to raise prices.
Corey maintains an active pro bono practice as well. He is currently working alongside the Innocence Project on a groundbreaking case involving the scientific invalidity of handheld toolmark examination. Corey helped overturn on appeal the denial of his client’s motion for a new trial, leading to an evidentiary hearing where the team presented evidence from world-renowned experts on the fundamental flaws in this purported science.
Corey earned his law degree with honors from The University of Chicago Law School, where he was managing editor of The University of Chicago Law Review and a Rubenstein Scholar. After graduating, Corey clerked for Judge Beverly B. Martin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
