Fisher & Phillips goes to Philadelphia with six new recruits


National law firm Fisher & Phillips LLP spread its reach to Philadelphia with the induction of six new attorneys. They comprise three new partners, two of counsels, and one associate.

The three partners from Saul Ewing are Christopher P. Stief, David W. Erb, and Michael R. Greco. The trio's practice spans across 50 states in the U.S. including Washington, DC. Their practice also spreads to Puerto Rico, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. They have helped more than 800 employees in litigation of defection and recruitment issues. Besides them, the two of counsels and an associate are Susan M. Guerette, Risa B. Boerner, and Heather Zalar Steele, respectively.

Stief will serve the firm's Philadelphia office as the Regional Managing Partner. Fisher & Phillips Chairman Roger Quillen said that the firm hopes to tap the expanding areas of non-competition and protection of trade secrets with the help of the new hiring. The move is also a part of the firm's strategies to help clients protect their companies' intellectual assets. It will also help the firm consolidate its presence in the Northeast. One of the nation's largest labor and employment law firms, Fisher & Phillips has 190 lawyers in 18 cities across the country.

BIZARRE NEWS

Embracing Crocodiles
In the long history of people trying to smuggle pricey items across borders, hats-off to the woman who tried to cross the Gaza-Egypt border with three crocodiles tied to her body. Sadly, in this case the woman got caught. She was stopped when the guards at the crossing became suspicious of her "strangely fat" shape. The crocodiles were discovered during a body search by a policewoman. "The policewoman screamed and ran out of the room, and then women began screaming and panicking when they heard," said Maria Telleria, spokeswoman for the European observers who run the crossing. "Later, everybody was admiring a woman who is able to tie crocodiles to her body," she informed AP. Each crocodile was nearly 20 inches long and their jaws were tied shut. The only thing left to wonder… How did she not get scratched up or bitten while strapping the crocs on her body??

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
