Before we start looking forward to 2011, the Connecticut Law Tribune last week did a notable feature on various lawyers in Connecticut who "made a difference" in 2010. It’s worth a read (and not just because one of my law partners, Eliot Gersten, is featured.)
There are several labor & employment law attorneys referenced (some of whom, I’m told, are avid readers of the blog as well). They are:
- Gregg Adler – a longtime union and employee attorney – is profiled for his work in the aftermath of the Hartford Distributors shootings.
- Tanya Bovee, a management-side attorney, is also profiled for her work with various organizations. Tanya was most recently honored by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Best Under 40 award.
- Cheryl Sharp – an attorney for the CHRO – who has organized information sessions about workplace discrimination across the state.
- Dorit Heimer – who practiced employment law for many years in private practice — now serves as Associate General Counsel for Save the Children, where she continues to focus on employment matters in the U.S. and foreign countries.
The labor & employment law bar in Connecticut is still fairly small and friendly and I commend each of them for their work over the last year.
