Remington is Counsel for Civil Justice and Consumer Rights where he leads the fight to protect individuals from corporate abuses, working on a portfolio that includes promoting a fair and accessible justice system, consumer rights, and product safety. He is an expert in areas of civil rights, civil justice, and forced arbitration.
Previously, Remington served as an attorney at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organization, principally counseling the organization on issues related to hate crimes, criminal and racial justice, profiling, education, domestic violence, military and veterans, immigration, and foreign affairs. There, he was the principal author of a groundbreaking report exposing religious schools that sought exemptions from civil rights law to discriminate against LGBT students. The report became the basis for a California law requiring private colleges and universities to disclose policies that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
