Seth Ensign is a partner with Manning Curtis Bradshaw & Bednar.  He spent his first year following law school serving as a law clerk to the Honorable Judge John R. Fisher of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.  During that year, Seth worked on cases involving a broad range of legal issues—from worker’s compensation claims and economic torts to a variety of Constitutional matters, including questions about due process protections, equal protection of the laws, the Seventh Amendment right to a civil jury trial, and the Full Faith and Credit Clause.

Since joining MCBB, Seth has served clients litigating contract disputes, trade secret disputes, fraud claims, business torts, malpractice claims, and a variety of other issues.  Seth has also been extensively involved in the internal investigation of business entities facing complex questions about corporate control and structure, the federal securities laws, and the scope of duties owed by corporate fiduciaries.  In addition, Seth frequently litigates employment cases brought pursuant to state and federal laws, including Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Seth graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School, where he became a senior editor of the BYU Law Review and a member of the school’s National Moot Court Team.  At the 2011 Rex E. Lee Moot Court Competition, Seth won both the best brief and best oralist awards.  Seth also spent a summer working at Oxford University with Professor Stefan Talmon, an internationally recognized expert in constitutional and human rights law.
