I have practiced law for over 20 years and am a former equity partner of the largest global employer and labor practice in the world. I have represented employees in employment disputes and employers in complex and multi-party class action, wage and hour, and discrimination lawsuits in federal and state courts. I have also successfully represented companies undergoing Department of Labor, Attorney General, EEOC and other government agency audits and investigations.
I am an experienced trainer having conducted hundreds of Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity and Inclusion and other compliance training sessions for executives of public and private companies. I have developed training programs nationally on professional conduct, diversity, team-building and other leadership topics.
As a mediator certified by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and by the New York Peace Institute, I specialize in resolving employment cases and workplace disputes when concerns are raised to management or human resources. I conduct in-house investigations of sensitive workplace complaints. I also am a certified executive coach specialized in working with C-Level executives on developing their skills as leaders. I have devoted my career to solving workplace issues, because the workplace has both professional and personal significance to those within it.
