Britt Gilbertson, a 2005 graduate of the University of Minnesota Law School, recently took on two leadership roles at the Briggs law firm. In 2018, she was named section leader of the employment, benefits, and labor group. In March, she was elected to the firm’s nine-member board of directors. That board voted to merge Briggs with the Taft law firm, which has offices in major Midwestern cities. The combined firm will have more than 600 attorneys. After the merger takes effect Jan. 1, Gilbertson will serve on the combined firm’s compensation committee. She’ll continue to work with clients and drive integration between her employment group and Taft attorneys.
