Brenda H. Feis is a founding partner of Feis Goldy LLC, a boutique employment law firm dedicated to advising, negotiating and litigating claims on behalf of individual employees, managers and executives. Her first career was as a defense-side employment litigator and equity partner at the international law firm Seyfarth Shaw, representing Fortune 100 companies in a wide array of employment disputes.

In addition to practicing law, Ms. Feis also serves as a neutral in investigations, training and counseling matters and teaches employment litigation at Loyola Law School.
