Following in his father's footsteps into the legal profession, Jim Briody is a litigator with twenty years of experience. He is a member of Sutherland's Litigation Practice Group and the firm's Labor & Employment, Dealer & Franchise and Construction teams. Jim concentrates his work on the defense and prosecution of business-related disputes, with an emphasis on employment and real estate matters and the automotive, government contracting and construction industries. He represents employers, motor vehicle manufacturers and distributors, government contractors, construction contractors, subcontractors, owners and lenders on various matters. Jim's most recent representation is of employers in class action cases.

Jim prepares thoroughly, an attribute that is particularly important for cases in the United States Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, known as a ”rocket docket“ for its quick resolution of cases. Attorneys representing clients there must be ready for discovery and all other case proceedings on time-the Court is known for not granting extensions. Jim has advanced and defended multimillion-dollar claims and prepared and prosecuted bid protests in addition to serving as counsel in trials, arbitrations, appeals, administrative hearings and mediations. Prior to joining the firm, Jim served as a law clerk for the Honorable Judges Donald H. Kent, Donald M. Haddock and Alfred D. Swersky of the Circuit Court of the City of Alexandria, Virginia.

Selected Experience
Sutherland represents bidder in U.S. Court of Federal Claims bid protest.
Sutherland successfully represented a distributor in dealer unlawful termination suit.
Sutherland protects manufacturer's dealer incentive program.


Honorable Donald H. Kent, Circuit Court of the City of Alexandria, Virginia
