She previously served as the Director of Legal Affairs for Everdream Corporation (acquired by Dell Inc.), overseeing the legal aspects of the technology company's business as its chief in-house counsel and a member of its senior management team. Before joining Everdream, Ms. Barrett was Senior Associate at the former litigation firm of Lukens and Drummond. There she acted as the primary associate attorney in complex litigation matters relating to contract disputes, antitrust laws, unfair business practices claims, environmental regulation, insurance claims, real estate financing and securities litigation.
Ms. Barrett continues to enjoy the challenges presented in both the corporate and litigation spheres. In addition to her corporate practice, she supports the firm's complex commercial litigation team.
Ms. Barrett received her J.D. at Georgetown University Law Center in 1995.
