"Very useful and thought provoking session. I will certainly be implementing what I have learned. I really enjoyed the interaction and scenario based teaching. Elena was also a great instructor with much knowledge and advice."
Participant, financial services

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 specialise 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.
