A pragmatic labor and employment attorney, Brendan Sage helps employers maintain a productive workforce and positive workplace.
Providing steadfast, practical labor and employment counsel to employers.
Brendan Sage focuses his practice on labor and employment law. Brendan represents business owners, HR managers, labor relations specialists, and corporate risk-management directors at employers of varying sizes and in a wide range of industries. Brendan has represented clients as diverse as banks, elevator companies, higher education institutions, and healthcare facilities. His practice spans across the labor and employment sector, including employment counseling and litigation in areas such as labor relations, discrimination, wage and hour issues, wrongful termination, and more.
A graduate of Georgetown Law and a former law clerk to Justice James P. Bassett of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, Brendan prides himself on producing top-quality work. If a client has the misfortune of ending up in litigation, Brendan has the skills and drive to master the legal issues at hand and zealously defend his clients’ interests. At the same time, Brendan is friendly and approachable, and always keeps the client’s goals in mind. He seeks to be a practical problem-solver who can help clients achieve positive outcomes as quickly and efficiently as possible, and to help head off problems before they even arise. As much as possible, Brendan wants clients to be able to focus on their business, not on legal matters.
In addition, Brendan is dedicated to his family and community. A native New Englander and a graduate of UVM, Brendan and his wife returned to Vermont after several years in Washington, DC to be closer to family and because of the amazing quality of life in the region. He enjoys the active lifestyle that Vermont offers, including hiking, biking, and swimming in Lake Champlain. He lives in Winooski with his wife and their beloved rescue dog, and serves as a member of the Winooski Planning Commission. Brendan has deep admiration for the communities of Northern New England and the employers who serve them, and is dedicated to using his career to helping them prosper.
