Bridget has practiced in commercial litigation, including class actions and other complex cases, and white collar criminal defense/internal investigations. Bridget has represented individuals and companies (including Fortune 100) in a variety of sectors: pharmaceutical, investment banking, life insurance, energy, accounting, defense procurement, and management consulting. She has litigated in a number of federal courts, including the successful representation in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit of a major oil company that overturned the enforcement of an adverse foreign judgment. Mobil Oil Co. de Venezuela v. Jimenez, 948 F.2d 1282 (4th Cir. 1991). She also has practiced in a number of state courts, including family court, and in arbitration proceedings. She has participated in a number of internal investigations on behalf of boards of directors and special committees. Such investigations help directors to fulfill their fiduciary duties by revealing areas of noncompliance or the need for improved corporate governance; this provides a proactive response to actual or anticipated governmental investigations by the SEC, the U.S. Congress, FDIC or the U.S. Attorney’s office, for example. Bridget worked in the Washington, D.C. office of Debevoise & Plimpton from 1989-96, when she relocated to Kentucky.
