Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Bruning Law Group team members have led the nation in resolving some of the more challenging disputes of the last decade. From complex multi-state river compact issues, to the settlement of a decade-long battle with big tobacco companies, to protecting state interests in the major automobile manufacturers’ bankruptcies, our team has developed lines of communication and crafted creative resolutions that allowed parties to come together and resolve their differences.

Our attorneys have handled dozens of federal regulatory disputes and have extensive experience with both civil litigation and appellate advocacy. Admitted to practice in numerous courts around the country, our clients benefit from our experience in the courtroom and creative approach to resolving difficult issues.

While many of our efforts made the news, it was hard to miss Jon Bruning and the team of professionals at Bruning Law Group when they helped lead the 26 state challenge to the Affordable Care Act in 2009. Bruning argued before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in a case challenging EPA’s overreach, while David Cookson successfully convinced the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold Nebraska’s compact water management plan in the original action Kansas v. Nebraska. Katie Spohn defended the constitutionality of an oil pipeline law impacting TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline before the Nebraska Supreme Court. Blake Johnson wrote the Petition for Certiorari before the United States Supreme Court in Parker v. Pender.

No other law firm has a former three-term Attorney General who was President of the National Association of Attorneys General, that also includes his very special senior staff: a former Chief of Staff, Chief Deputy, and Deputy Attorney General, all working together to solve complex problems on behalf of their clients.
