This list offers corporate counsel and human resource professionals an unparalleled guide to some of the best, most powerful lawyers who are poised to help them resolve difficult employment situations and keep them in compliance with the country’s increasingly complicated and changing workplace-related laws and regulations.
The list consists of 200 employment lawyers broken down by the following categories: 100 leading corporate-side lawyers, 20 specialists in each area – immigration, traditional labor law, and employee benefits, and 40 Up-and-Comers. Bob was named one of 20 specialists in traditional labor law. The process pairs online balloting and submissions with rigorous vetting as well as editorial and peer review. To make the cut, a lawyer typically has practiced more than 20 years and amassed a list of accomplishments that speak for themselves. All have received glowing recommendations from corporate counsel who have benefitted from their wisdom and would hire them again. Lastly, rigorous vetting is performed by an acclaimed editorial advisory board which provides input based on experiences with those under consideration and an evaluation of the attorney’s impact within his firm and in the profession.
