Following a competitive application process, associate
Brandi Howard was selected to be one of 24 participants in the District of Columbia Bar's
John Payton Leadership Academy Class of 2020. This intensive training
program lasts from March 20 through May 29.
The academy, led by experienced lawyers and leadership experts, trains D.C.
Bar members to be leaders of the bar, in the profession and in their
community. In its Feb. 25, 2020,
press release announcing the class, the D.C. Bar said the academy focuses on “essential
leadership qualities that resonate in the legal profession,” including
setting goals, building trust, learning to inspire others, defining
success, communicating effectively and building relationships.
As a member of the firm’s
Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation Department, recognized by Law360 as a
Group of the Year, Howard focuses her practice on investigations, white collar and complex
commercial litigation, and appellate matters. She counsels clients through
government and internal investigations, and represents clients in state and
federal court, and in arbitration. She also has extensive experience in
healthcare litigation and is a two-time appellate law clerk.
