LEAN, the Lease Enforcement Attorney Network, announced Brittany Ogden and Robert Hornby have joined its steering committee. These new committee members bring years of experience and leadership in the industry, which will help expand the organization's reach and influence.

Ogden is a Partner at Quarles & Brady LLP’s Milwaukee office where she serves as the firm's National Co-Chair of its Bankruptcy, Restructuring, & Creditor's Rights Practice Group. Her legal expertise extends to state and federal courts, specializing in creditor’s rights, commercial litigation, and bankruptcy. She represents financial institutions, equipment finance companies, and creditors regularly. In 2022, The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) honored her with their prestigious Michael J. Fleming Distinguished Service Award, acknowledging her substantial contributions to both the association and the equipment finance industry. She also serves on the Board for the Equipment Leasing and Finance Foundation as well as Chair of the ELFA Amicus Curiae Subcommittee.

“I have enjoyed my membership in LEAN,” said Ogden, “and look forward to serving in a leadership role as we strive to grow the organization and the clients we serve.”

Hornby is a Member of CSG Law in Roseland, NJ where he chairs the firm's Equipment Leasing & Asset-Based Lending Team. He was recently installed as President of NEFA, the National Equipment Finance Association. He also serves on ELFA’s Legal Committee. An experienced litigator, he represents national and regional banks and finance companies in all aspects of equipment leasing, asset based lending and civil litigation in New York and New Jersey state and federal courts. He regularly counsels clients on a wide range of matters unique to the equipment finance and leasing industry, from drafting master documentation to the enforcement of lessors’ and secured creditors’ rights.

“2024 will be a busy year in leasing and commercial finance,” said Hornby. “I look forward to helping guide the organization and its members to deliver great solutions to the industry and those we serve.”

The two new steering committee members join LEAN founder Robert Bernstein, of Bernstein Burkley in Pittsburgh, Lewis Cohn of Cohn and Dussi in Boston, Dan Heald of Hemar Rousso in Los Angeles, Harry Simon of Denver, and Howard Toland of Mitrani, Rynor, Adamsky & Toland, PA on the Steering Committee.

Bernstein said, “adding Brittany and Robert to our committee will help take LEAN to a new level. We are excited to have them on our leadership team.”
