Brian Cafritz

Brian has been an invaluable member of the KPM LAW team since 1994, his commitment having helped solidify and expand the foundation of KPM LAW’s regional defense network. Brian’s practice primarily focuses on the defense of Fortune 500 companies that operate under large self-insured retentions. With bar licenses in four jurisdictions and four strategically located offices, he has built a dedicated team and developed an efficient system that allows him to aggressively defend all matters in a regional practice that covers the entire mid-Atlantic region. As Brian’s practice became more focused on Hospitality, Retail, and Restaurant litigation, he co-founded the National Retail and Restaurant Defense Association (NRRDA) to promote the education and communication channels of industry leaders and counsel. Brian was elected to serve two terms as the association’s first president, and he continues to sit on the NRRDA Board of Directors. Under his leadership, NRRDA became a leader in the Retail and Restaurant sector and now boasts over 600 members. As a testament to his leadership and litigation abilities, Brian is rated A+ by Martindale Hubbell, has been named by Superlawyers in Virginia and West Virginia’s as a leader in Civil Litigation, and is the only Virginia attorney selected to be a member of IALDA, a defense network dedicated to the defense of the Amusements and Leisure industry.
