Brant has spent his career representing workers in class action lawsuits and on their individuals claims for discrimination, retaliation, and failure to pay wages. Prior to joining Fair Work, he was the senior associate at one of New England's leading employee-side class action firms, where he worked on cases involving gratuities, unpaid overtime, and misclassification of exotic dancers and cleaning workers. 

Brant has worked on several groundbreaking cases challenging systemic wage abuses in the exotic dancing industry, improper sharing and distribution of tips and gratuities, misclassification of cleaning workers as independent contractors, and failure to pay overtime. In addition to his class action work, Brant has successfully resolved individual cases involving claims for discrimination and retaliation.

Brant's practice has taken him to nearly every type of forum. He has pursued cases in state and federal courts and in private arbitration, and has authored briefs in a number of cases for appellate courts, including the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the Hawaii Supreme Court, and the United States First Circuit, Second Circuit, and Third Circuit Courts of Appeals. Several of these cases have resulted in landmark decisions, such as rulings that managerial shift supervisors could not participate in tip pools with baristas at an international coffee shop chain and that service employees in Hawaii had the right to recover unpaid service charges from the hotels where they worked.

Brant graduated summa cum laude with a degree in history from Northeastern University. There, he was awarded the Robinson Prize for Best Undergraduate Research Paper. He currently lives in Medford with his wife, who is a librarian, and a Boston Terrier.
