The Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel (FDCC) has appointed Attorney Jamie Huffman Jones as Chair of its Amicus and Public Policy Committee.
Jamie, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Practice Group, has done strong work with the committee, including a 50-state survey of summary judgment standards to support the FDCC’s Amicus Brief in the Florida Supreme Court.
The FDCC is a not-for-profit corporation with a national and international membership of 1,400 defense and corporate counsel working in private practice, as in-house counsel, and as insurance claims representatives. The FDCC constantly strives to protect the American system of justice. Its members have established a strong legacy of representing the interests of civil defendants, including publicly and privately-owned businesses, public entities and individual defendants.
The FDCC seeks to assist courts in addressing issues of importance to its membership that concern the fair and predictable administration of justice. The Amicus and Public Policy Committee advocates for and against proposed changes in the law, and works to shape the outcomes. It files an amicus brief, comment or letter when the Committee and Federation’s officers agree that doing so will advance its mission.
