Peter Bruland focuses his practice on appellate litigation. He has substantial briefing
experience and has represented clients before the Supreme Court, as well as federal and
state appellate courts around the country. Mr. Bruland’s work spans an array of legal issues,
including securities, antitrust, products liability, intellectual property, contracts, constitutional
law, and administrative law.
Mr. Bruland also maintains an active pro bono practice and has secured victories for clients
in disability rights, education, Social Security, and criminal law appeals. Most recently,
he won a case of first impression under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act,
convincing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that his client was entitled to
seek an independent educational evaluation.
Before joining Skadden, Mr. Bruland practiced at another global law firm, where he also
focused on appellate litigation. He clerked for Judge A. Raymond Randolph of the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
