Career

Connie focuses her practice on whistleblower, trade secrets, government contractors and employee mobility counseling and litigation. She frequently conducts confidential internal investigations involving executive-level employees, including alleged fraud, theft or misuse of company data, trade secrets, sexual harassment and code of conduct violations. She routinely counsels, investigates and litigates restrictive covenant and trade secrets disputes between employers and former employees.

Connie has defended complex whistleblower, trade secrets and restrictive covenant litigation across the United States, including claims brought under Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, the False Claims Act and other federal and state employment and whistleblower provisions. Connie also advises clients regarding the development and implementation of effective whistleblower and business ethics policies and programs, the investigation of whistleblower complaints, and the handling of current employees who have “blown the whistle.”

Connie has represented clients such as Pepco Holdings, BAE Systems, U.S. Foods, Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP and Feed the Children.
