Brit (Brittany) Merrill

Associate

222 South Main Street, Suite 2200, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Brit counsels large and small employers on state and federal compliance and litigation issues.

Brit develops close working relationship with clients so she can help them proactively address and resolve issues with the goal of avoiding or minimizing liability and costs. She assists clients with the full range of federal statutory compliance, particularly Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). 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 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.
