Press Release - Attorneys Elected to the Hastings 1066 Foundation Board of Trustees
Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold LLP announced that the University of California Hastings College of the Law has elected Sedgwick attorney Amber Rye Brumfiel to the Hastings 1066 Foundation board of trustees. The 1066 Foundation raises funds to maintain and elevate Hastings' academic excellence, made increasingly critical by the state's dramatic reduction in financial support. Hastings selected Brumfiel for her professional prominence and commitment to advancing the school's academic standing.
"The 1066 Foundation enables Hasting to fulfill its commitment to excellence by providing scholarships, recruiting exceptional students, funding academic programs, student publications, and more," said Brumfiel.
Sedgwick's more than 40 Hastings alumni continue to offer the school financial and professional support, including Sedgwick Partner Rebecca Hull who served as the 1066 Foundation's President.
A member of the Hastings class of 2001 and the board's youngest member, Brumfiel litigates a wide range of commercial disputes, including patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, contract issues and torts. She has significant experience handling real estate litigation, including prosecuting and defending eminent domain actions, commercial landlord-tenant matters and title issues. Brumfiel is also an active member of the Commercial Real Estate Women. She graduated cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles, and during her time at Hastings, Brumfiel was the senior managing editor of the Hastings Law Journal.
