Today’s corporate leadership expects General Counsels and the internal legal departments they lead to be business partners that actively participate in the development and implementation of business strategies, not just attorneys who evaluate and mitigate risk. Brandy’s executive legal search practice is focused on helping her clients meet this need.
Brandy has deep experience leading General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer searches, as well as searches for senior reports to the General Counsel, such as Regional/Divisional General Counsels, Deputy General Counsels, Corporate Secretaries, Chief IP Counsels and Chief Securities Counsels. Her legal and compliance clients include public and privately held companies that span a variety of industries including retail, consumer products, financial services, technology, insurance and healthcare.
Before joining DHR, Brandy was a Managing Director in the In-House Practice Group at a leading legal executive search firm. Prior to that, she practiced as a commercial litigator in the New York offices of Anderson, Kill & Olick, P.C., McKee Nelson, LLP and Bingham McCutchen, LLP.
Brandy holds a Juris Doctor degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, as well as a Master of Arts in Comparative Literature and Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature and Creative Writing from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
