University of Texas el Paso, University of Wisconsin Law School

How long have you been a member of the ACC of Wisconsin?
Ten years

Why did you join the ACC-WI?
I joined the ACC in 2011. While we each face unique challenges related to our clients, there are many common practice issues and topics that we share with our in-house corporate counsel peers. ACC has allowed me to connect with attorneys facing similar needs and who are willing to share and teach. Having access to that group of professionals has been invaluable.

Name: Brittney Cornillaud

Company, Title, and Years of Service: First Supply LLC - Corporate Counsel - 5 years

College/University and Law School: University of Wisconsin - Madison New England Law – Boston

How long have you been a member of the ACC of Wisconsin?
Two years

Why did you join the ACC-WI?
One of my favorite things about being the only lawyer at First Supply is not dealing with other lawyers’ hot air all day. However, there’s something to be said for JD camaraderie and masterful wit. So, my answer is networking; the ability to connect with those who understand the perks and challenges of my unique role and who might have a tip or two to share. Educational programming tailored to in house counsel is a close second.
