Britaney Garrett is a counselor and courtroom advocate who focuses her practice on advising organizational clients through policy changes and implementation, investigations, and litigation.
Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Britaney has firsthand knowledge of the impact regulation, legislation, and litigation can have on business objectives. With these factors in mind, she works to provide solutions that address a client’s immediate legal needs as well as their long-term business goals. Clients know Britaney as both a deeply empathetic, intuitive listener and thoroughly candid advisor, providing legal advice which is practical as well as strategic in the areas of:
Labor and employment litigation. Britaney works to resolve cases in the way that best suits a client’s objectives – with a negotiated solution, through arbitration or mediation or, when necessary, in court. She has handled a full range of labor and employment disputes, including discrimination claims, wage and hour disputes, grievance proceedings, non-competition and breach of restrictive covenant disputes, and related matters.
Labor and employment counseling. Britaney advises employers on both long-term strategies and day-to-day issues, including drafting and review of employment agreements, developing workplace policies and procedures, and helping employers to understand the litigation scenarios they can face with severance agreements, discipline and terminations.
Commercial litigation. Britaney has counseled clients on disputes involving commercial contracts and agreements, commercial torts and regulatory compliance. She has extensive experience in rapidly evolving markets and technologies, which often give rise to social issues and legal disputes that outpace legislative and regulatory action. This work includes administrative action related to legalization of medical and recreational cannabis, and disputes involving religious accommodations with respect to vaccines.
Clients. Britaney has represented institutional clients in the public sector (public universities, cities and counties, fire departments, police agencies, public hospitals, and other entities) as well as private sector clients including emerging companies, real estate investment groups, banks and companies operating in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, finance, and cannabis.
In her spare time, Britaney enjoys yoga, organic gardening and road-tripping to parts unknown.
