We don’t like to toot our own horn in blog posts too often, but the arrival of Heather Capell Bramble in Venable’s Washington, DC office was a development we thought worthy of some tooting and something important to all of you as well.

Heather joins Venable from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), where she served as chief counsel and policy advisor to Commissioner Marietta Robinson. During her time at the CPSC, she was involved in a wide range of issues, including providing advice and counsel on all proposed consumer product regulations, and mandatory standards, as well as product recalls, Section 15(b) reporting, administrative litigation, and enforcement and settlement agreements.

In the firm’s press release announcing Heather’s arrival, Larry Norton, the chair of Venable’s Government Division, talked about how her unique experience will bolster Venable’s expanding consumer product safety and product liability practices, and positions her as a great asset to clients responding to government investigations and navigating today’s uncertain regulatory environment. We couldn’t agree more.

Like many of us Heather has done plenty of other interesting things in her career, including work on CFTC and SEC related issues, all of which you can see in more detail by clicking here.

We would love to introduce you to Heather and let you pick her brain about the direction of consumer product safety law, and what issues brands should keep an eye on during 2018.
