Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.

When it comes to asbestos-related litigation, whether for large, nationally recognized corporations or regional companies looking to hire counsel, contact Brita. She also has a deep background handling a wide variety of civil litigation matters, including product liability, toxic tort, municipal, environmental, land use enforcement, and personal injury.

No matter is too large—or too small. Whether defending individuals, companies, or municipalities, she works tirelessly on her client’s behalf throughout all aspects of the case, from conducting and defending discovery and trial depositions, to drafting and arguing motions, to working with expert witnesses. At the heart of her hard work and diligence is a single goal: providing the best possible resolution at a reasonable cost.

But that’s not all. Brita is also very experienced in:

  • Collaborating with the Business Restructuring and Insolvency Practice Group on major bankruptcy cases involving fee examination

In her former life, Brita was:

  • Judicial intern for New York Supreme Court Justice Martin Schoenfeld
  • Legislative assistant for US Congressman Joseph J. DioGuardi (NY, 1985 – 1989)
  • Product liability and environmental/insurance coverage attorney at a large New York City law firm
  • Member of a small asbestos litigation and environmental firm in Portland, Maine
