“I'm deeply honored to have been singled out by Chambers as their selection of Employment Lawyer of the Year – and to stand alongside a group of the most eminent women practicing labor and employment law
in the U.S., as named by our own professional peers. Those of us who work in this space know that the issues and challenges our clients face in employment matters touch every facet of their business and have enormous consequences for all stakeholders – not only employees, but customers, investors, outside suppliers, the media. I absolutely love helping our clients work through their toughest workplace concerns and am so pleased to be able to share this recognition with them, as with my colleagues at Seyfarth,” said Damon.
I found the daily emails to be very helpful.
