Wendella Ault Battey
Ms. Battey graduated with distinction, from Hofstra University in 1983, and Brooklyn Law School in 1989. After taking both the New York and Connecticut state bar exams, Ms. Battey began practicing law at a prominent Connecticut law firm, where after a few years she began her private practice in 1994. Shortly after beginning in private practice, Ms. Battey's transaction based commercial finance practice was expanded to include representation of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") and the Resolution Trust Corporation ("RTC") in both commercial and residential loan transactions.
Ms. Battey was the first minority attorney in the State of Connecticut to represent the FDIC in the closing of several insolvent Connecticut banking institutions, in both Federal and State Courts. Today, in addition to her private practice, Ms. Battey is an appointed member of the Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations and a Mediator for the State Department of Education.
