Associate   |   Austin

Brian A. Aslin is a labor and employment attorney with a record of achieving success for clients as lead counsel before juries, judges, and appellate courts. Brian represents Fortune 50 corporations and small businesses alike, providing responsive, practical counsel to employers with a focus on the technology and healthcare sectors. Brian’s substantial courtroom experience distinguishes him from his peers as a credible and persuasive advocate who leads client matters with confidence.

A skilled litigator and member of the firm’s Trial Practice Group, Brian represents employers in:

  • Discrimination, retaliation, and harassment cases that arise under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act (Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code);
  • Unfair competition and trade secret disputes that involve restrictive covenants such as non-compete and non-solicitation agreements;
  • Charges of Discrimination filed with administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), and the City of Austin’s Office of Civil Rights; and
  • Traditional labor matters including union organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, and unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

In addition to an active litigation practice, Brian regularly provides employers with proactive advice and counsel on all aspects of the employment relationship, including:

  • Multistate compliance for employers with remote workers or physical locations in multiple states;
  • Employee handbook and policy reviews; and
  • Guidance on high-risk employee separations.

Before joining Ogletree Deakins, Brian served as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas where his practice focused on high-impact employment litigation. At the Office of the Attorney General, he obtained successful results for clients at jury trial, appellate oral argument, and in hearings on emergency temporary restraining orders, temporary injunctions, and dispositive motions—all as attorney-in-charge. Brian’s clients included Texas’s flagship university systems, nationally top-ranked medical centers, and statewide elected officials.

A former prosecutor, Brian began his career as an Assistant District Attorney where he achieved an undefeated first-chair jury trial record. On top of his success in the courtroom, Brian was appointed to manage a team of prosecutors and staff as a Court Chief.

Brian earned his Juris Doctor from Baylor University School of Law, where he was a member of the Order of the Barristers, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Performance with a minor in Religion from Baylor University. In 2023, Brian was elected a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation.
