Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP, in strategic response to the significant and sustained growth of the firm’s well-established representation of clients in the areas of employment counseling, compliance and litigation, is pleased to announce the formation of its new Employment Law Department, with partners Maja M. Obradovic and Thomas C. Senter to lead as Co-Chairs.
The Employment Law Department now joins the firm’s eight existing Departments in representing the core areas of its practice – Litigation, Real Estate, Redevelopment & Land Use, Corporate, Healthcare, Environmental, Family Law, and Tax, Trusts & Estates. The move realigns the firm’s organizational structure to reflect an expansion in demand by clients for sophisticated and cost-effective representation in employment law counseling, compliance issues and related disputes.
Co-Managing partner W. Raymond Felton comments: “Throughout its 100 year-plus history, the Greenbaum firm has always been guided by an unwavering commitment to focus our priorities on the needs of our clients. The considerable expertise of our lawyers in the complex field of employment law has increasingly positioned the firm as a ‘go to’ resource for a broad array of clients seeking specialized legal support as they navigate the everchanging employment landscape.”
Members of the Employment Law Department service clients in both the private and public sectors, with a primary focus on management. They provide representation in state and federal courts, before administrative agencies, and in arbitration proceedings. The firm's employment litigation practice encompasses discrimination, sexual harassment, whistleblower retaliation, and restrictive covenant matters. A significant component of the firm’s employment practice involves providing strategic guidance with regard to employment practices, compliance issues and risk management. Comprehensive representation in matters related to employee benefits and executive compensation includes the drafting and negotiation of employment and separation agreements, and equity and equity-based compensation arrangements. Additionally, members of the Department conduct human resources audits, perform internal investigations, and develop management and employee training programs covering all aspects of employment-related issues.
