Brit develops close working relationship with clients to proactively address and resolve issues with the goal of avoiding or minimizing liability and costs.

Brit provides strategic legal counsel and risk management advice to clients on a wide variety of employment matters, including compensation, performance management, separations, leaves of absence, discrimination, harassment, diversity and inclusion, workplace privacy, wage and hour compliance, restrictive covenants, reasonable accommodations, and employee classification.

Brit drafts and reviews employment, separation, severance, confidentiality, and settlement agreements; conducts and advises clients on workplace investigations of allegations of employee misconduct; prepares and updates employee handbooks and related policies, procedures, and guidelines; and monitors and assesses the impact of employment law developments and enforcement trends at the federal, state, and local levels.

When disputes cannot be resolved through counseling and negotiation, Brit effectively advocates for clients in state and federal court and before administrative agencies. Clients benefit from Brit’s experience in negotiation, communication, and strategic planning skills developed through ten years of working as a community organizer in the non-profit sector.

Before joining Holland & Hart, Brit worked with a large Utah-based law firm where her practice included commercial litigation, employment law, and immigration law. After graduating from law school, Brit gained experience as a law clerk in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah. Brit was selected by her peers for inclusion in Utah Business Magazine’s Utah Legal Elite: “Up & Coming” (2020 and 2021).
