Host: Kim Craig, Director of Seyfarth Shaw's PMO and Communication Lead for PMI's LPM CoP.

Presenter: Brett Bartlett is chair of Seyfarth Shaw's Labor & Employment Department in Atlanta, a member of the Department's National Steering Committee, and a leader in the firm's National Wage & Hour Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Bartlett devotes the majority of his practice to the defense of complex federal and state wage and hour litigation. He also provides preventative counseling and change management assistance to employers wishing to limit their exposure to investigation and litigation under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the state laws that require employers to pay overtime and minimum wages to their employees. Mr. Bartlett frequently speaks at seminars and conferences regarding employers' compliance with wage and hour matters, contributes to such publications as the Fair Labor Standards Act , Cumulative Supplement, ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law (2002-2009). Prior to beginning his management-side employment law practice, he chaired his law school's moot court board, argued in the Wagner Labor & Employment Moot Court Competition, and was awarded the ABA/BNA Award for Excellence in the Study of Labor & Employment Law. 

Mr. Bartlett has been quoted in several newspapers and professional journals. In one American Lawyer article "On the Right Track" (Hansen), he was quoted as saying, "Project managers have become so central to Seyfarth's efficiency drive that he and other partners have begun taking them on some key client pitches." In addition, he has stated, "Our project managers have become a focal point of my practice. I rely on them to interface with our key client contacts and to ensure that our matters are managed efficiently and effectively. I think that this is a burgeoning field of practice that will enable law firms to meet their clients' needs in a rapidly paced legal market. I am a true believer in project management." Mr. Bartlett is a member of PMI's Atlanta Chapter.
