Brittany delivers outstanding results for individuals and companies involved in high-stakes criminal and civil litigation. A clear-headed counselor and experienced trial lawyer, she fights to give clients the upper hand at every stage of litigation—from pleadings and discovery to dispositive motion practice and trial. Brittany's clients trust her to develop and execute creative strategies, both in the courtroom and behind the scenes.
Throughout her career, Brittany has established a reputation for strong written and oral advocacy. She is a shrewd analytical thinker and a creative storyteller, adept at distilling complex legal issues into clear, common-sense terms. Her briefs and motions regularly sway judges in her clients' favor, securing wins on motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment.
Brittany also shapes the trajectory of her cases through her trial presentation, relying on her vigorous preparation and quick thinking to pursue lines of questioning that yield positive outcomes for her clients. In one recent jury trial in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California—a hotly contested, bet-the-business trade secrets dispute betwen two biotechnology companies—Brittany's cross-examination of several key witnesses, including the plaintiff's CEO, helped unravel the plaintiff's trade secrets claims and paved the way to a defense victory for her client against an Am Law 20 law firm.
Prior to joining CW, Brittany worked as an associate in the New York and Washington, D.C. offices of Schulte, Roth & Zabel LLP, where she represented both entities and individuals in criminal trials and appeals, civil disputes and arbitrations, internal investigations, and regulatory examinations.
Brittany earned her J.D. from Columbia Law School, where she was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and the production editor for The Columbia Journal of Law & the Arts. While in law school, Brittany prosecuted domestic violence misdemeanors as an extern with the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
