SAN DIEGO (January 1, 2018) – The San Diego-based firm of Wilson Turner Kosmo LLP announces the election of two new partners, Carolina Bravo-Karimi and Emily Fox. Effective Jan. 1, Bravo-Karimi and Fox, both 2008 graduates of the University of San Diego School of Law, began their new roles at the largest certified women-owned law firm in both San Diego and California.

“The partners at Wilson Turner Kosmo are thrilled to have Carolina and Emily join our partnership,” said firm partner and co-founder Claudette Wilson. “We look forward to their continued excellent representation of our clients as partners and participation in the leadership of our firm moving forward.”

A member of the firm’s Employment Law Practice Group, Bravo-Karimi represents and advises employers on a diverse array of employment disputes, including wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment as well as wage and hour litigation. She is also active in the local legal community, serving as the president of the San Diego Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, on the Law Alumni Board for the USD School of Law and as Outreach Chair for the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Women and Families Resource Fair.

Bravo-Karimi received her J.D. from USD in 2008, her MSc from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and her B.A., cum laude, from Harvard University in 2002.  She is fluent in Spanish, Farsi and Italian.

In recognition of her many contributions to the law school as well as greater San Diego and its legal community, Bravo-Karimi was honored with the USD School of Law Rising Star Recent Alumni Award in 2017.

A member of WTK’s Labor and Employment practice group since 2013, Fox represents and provides counsel to employers of all sizes across the varying areas of labor and employment law, including discrimination, retaliation, harassment and wage and hour practices. She routinely conducts comprehensive employment-practice analyses for local and national companies along with wage and hour audits to ensure compliance with state and federal laws and revises personnel manuals, policies and employment-related contracts. Fox also trains human resource and management professionals on new and developing laws.

Beyond her legal practice, Fox serves as president of Camp San Diego, an organization aimed at preparing local youth for life by finding their spark and voice through environmental, camp, teen service and leadership programs.
