Featured Experience

Court Sets Aside $5 Million Default Judgment Case

When a national restaurant chain did not respond quickly enough to a lawsuit, the court entered a default judgment of $5 million. The restaurant chain needed a determined team of attorneys to persuade the court to set aside the judgment. With no time to lose, Brittany wrote the motion to set aside the default judgment and the brief requesting that the court grant the motion based on excusable neglect. The team argued the issue and convinced the court to set aside the $5 million judgment.

Outside the Office

A native of St. Louis, Brittany enjoys exploring Washington and acquainting herself with the city’s restaurants, music venues and famous monuments.

Community Leadership

Brittany offers her time to help youths pursue their musical interests.

She serves on the board of directors and volunteers with L.I.F.E. Cultural and Performing Arts, a nonprofit organization that supports kids who are interested in pursuing music. Whether the young person’s interest is singing in choir, playing an instrument or music therapy, the organization can help. As a classical bass player, Brittany understands the importance of music in a young person’s life and enjoys giving children a chance to pursue a creative outlet through music.

NextGen Committee

Brittany serves as chair of the firm’s NextGen committee, which functions as the voice of associates and non-partner attorneys with less than 10 years of experience.

The committee works to create policies and initiatives that positively impact newer attorneys’ careers and encourage their engagement with the firm.

Led by an executive committee, NextGen has four subcommittees which mirror the firm’s C-Suite structure. The leaders of each subcommittee have been paired with their counterpart on the firm’s leadership team. In addition, each office location has one to three designated NextGen representatives, who help keep a pulse on associate issues and plan their own associate social gatherings. NextGen has monthly calls with these representatives to discuss any issues or concerns.

NextGen’s recent successes include a shift in how associate billable equivalent hours are recorded, along with the development of a dashboard that allows associates to easily track these hours by category. The committee also leads the “Next Up” Initiative, which highlights the firm’s next generation of leaders—the ones who are “next up” to lead the firm in the future. The program pairs NextGen committee members with senior leadership mentors at both the executive and individual office level, with meetings held quarterly.
