Patrick A Costello - Dailey, LLP Attorney

Alfred Anthony Brown / Attorney

As a seasoned litigator and a pioneer in the field of electronic discovery, I understand the importance of utilizing all tools available to more efficiently and effectively tell our clients’ stories.

In more than 25 years as a litigator of complex commercial matters, Alfred Anthony Brown has represented a wide variety of clients, including Fortune 500 companies in the pharmaceutical, technology, and retail sectors. In the mid-2000s, he created a pioneering technology assisted review (“TAR”) system that enabled the efficient and accurate electronic discovery review of millions of database records in relational structures. Al continues to use his technological knowledge to create processes and forms that allow Dailey LLP to do more for clients in less time.

Over the decades, Al has also litigated cases involving a wide range of business matters, including breach of contract, product and premises liability, creditors’ rights, professional malpractice, insurance coverage, accounting liability, municipal utilities’ rights, and consumer class actions. He has advised clients on the management and security of electronically stored information (ESI) and the proper implementation of every phase of the e-discovery lifecycle.

Al’s ability to solve complicated problems on the legal-technological spectrum has made him an asset to legal teams all over the country. He has trained and supervised hundreds of attorneys and support staff on e-discovery processes and best practices.

Before joining Dailey LLP, Al worked at two of the largest law firms in the United States. He began his career in the tax department of one of the “Big Six” accounting firms (as they were then known).
