Britt Strottman Named “Giant Slayer” in Top Litigators Competition
Meyers Nave proudly announces that Principal Britt K. Strottman has been named a “Giant Slayer” in The Recorder’s 2015 Litigation Department of the Year competition. The evaluators of the state-wide competition reviewed 176 nominations for “California litigation practices that delivered standout results on their clients’ most critical matters.” This year’s list also recognizes individual litigators “whose results qualify for one of three honorary titles: game changers, giant slayers and groundbreakers.”
Selecting Britt as a “Giant Slayer,” The Recorder recognized her role as Special Counsel for the City of San Bruno against the combined giants of Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the California Public Utilities Commission regarding the still unfolding aftermath of a deadly gas pipeline explosion and fire in 2010. Britt’s groundbreaking work for the City of San Bruno has led to a record proposed $1.6 billion fine against Pacific Gas & Electric Company, the indictment of PG&E on criminal charges, claims of political corruption at the California Public Utilities Commission, and multiple state and federal investigations of the utility and public agency. In recognition of the importance of her work to expose corruption through the City’s Public Records Act lawsuit, the City received a James Madison Freedom of Information Award at the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists’ ceremony on March 12, 2015.
Britt has 14 years of experience handling high-profile litigation, internal investigations, crisis management, and state and federal regulatory investigations on behalf of public and private clients. She has steadily risen to become a leader in her field and the firm. “Britt brought outstanding credentials to Meyers Nave as a former Senior Assistant Attorney General, Deputy District Attorney, and executive in a crisis communications firm. She quickly demonstrated the legal expertise, client service and team leadership skills that recently earned her a promotion to Principal and the position of Chair of our Crisis Management Practice Group,” said David W. Skinner, Managing Principal of Meyers Nave.
