Crain's Cleveland Business Notable Leaders in Employment & Labor Law
"The world of labor and employment law asks attorneys to digest information quickly and understand new rules or regulations as they are issued, then advise clients on the best ways to apply them. The tumult of the COVID-19 pandemic required real-time learning and adjusting, and the "new" world of remote work that flowed from the pandemic prompted changes in approach from employers and employees.
Crain's 25 Notable Leaders in Employment and Labor Law address all of these issues, and more. These attorneys run the gamut of firms and jobs. They are partners, founders and group leaders. They work for larger firms, as well as smaller firms, that bear their name. They have worked through employer-labor disputes, and navigated through workplace safety issues in the pandemic in creative and thoughtful ways in what became a politically charged time. They are a diverse group representative of the Cleveland community, and their volunteer efforts are many.
These attorneys give their time to benefit local schools, charitable groups and nonprofits while also doing their best to ensure the business community they advise is acting in the best interests of both the company and the employees."
