Ohio-based Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease announced Jan. 8 that it has promoted two attorneys in its Houston office to partners.
Tiffany Bingham Briscoe (pictured) says she joined Vorys in February 2009 to open the Houston office. She says she is a member of the firm’s litigation group and represents mostly defendants in civil litigation, including premises liability, products liability and toxic torts. She also handles real estate litigation for banks and does appellate work.
Briscoe says she clerked from 1999 to 2001 for Eric T. Washington, now the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit, after graduating from Harvard Law School. Briscoe says she was an associate at Porter & Hedges and also worked at Vinson & Elkins before joining Vorys. She says she was an assistant professor at South Texas College of Law.
The partnerships became effective Jan. 1.
