PRACTICES & INDUSTRIES SERVED Litigation & Dispute Resolution
  • Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program, 2013 – honored for providing pro bono legal services to low-income and elderly residents

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. In addition to her asbestos experience, Brita also has a deep background handling a wide variety of civil litigation matters, including in the areas of product liability, toxic tort, environmental, land use enforcement, landlord/tenant, commercial leases, municipal and personal injury.

No matter is too large—or too small. Whether representing individuals, companies, or municipalities, she works tirelessly on her client’s behalf throughout all aspects of the case, from working to resolve a dispute prior to litigation, to conducting and defending discovery and trial depositions, to drafting and arguing motions, to working with expert witnesses, and to final resolution. 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)
  • 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
