Practice Focus

Bicvan Brown is an attorney in the Employment Litigation practice. She focuses her practice in all aspects of employment matters, including employment trials, arbitrations and mediations. She defends employers while providing advice and counsel against claims such as ADA, wage and hour (individual and class actions), FLSA, PAGA, FEHA, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and whistleblowing. She defends employers before state and federal agencies such as the EEOC, California Labor Commission and California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. She is fluent in Vietnamese and Spanish and she provides advice about as well as translates workplace policies, employee handbooks and agreements. She regularly speaks at seminars with the purpose of helping employers and their insurers regarding best practices to minimize risk in California.

Bicvan also has a general liability practice in post-foreclosure evictions, housing discrimination, catastrophic injuries, personal injuries and mass toxic torts.  

Bicvan recently prevailed on summary judgment on behalf of an individual supervisor sued for age-based harassment, disability-based harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress and she recently obtained a dismissal on behalf of a company sued for negligent supervision and retention. 

Bicvan started her general liability practice in 1999 in a mass toxic torts action, using her Spanish language abilities. Since then, she has also defended Fortune 500 companies in catastrophic injury and personal injury matters and she has defended insurers in subrogation actions. She obtained a defense verdict in her most recent subrogation trial.
