Description of Member's Practice: I advise clients across a broad range of industries on the full spectrum of labor and employment matters, including compliance and counseling, litigation and alternative dispute resolution, and transactional matters. My regular compliance and counseling work includes advising on domestic and global pay equity reviews; conducting workplace investigations; preventing unfair competition and trade secret misappropriation; planning and implementing reductions in force; and developing, implementing and enforcing personnel policies and procedures. These policies and procedures include those regarding discrimination, harassment, retaliation, affirmative action and equal employment opportunities; medical leave and disability accommodation; wages and hours; exempt and non-exempt employee classification; independent contractor classification; hiring/firing; layoff notification; employee privacy; and workplace security. I also represent clients in litigation and alternative dispute resolution matters concerning wage and hour class, collective and representative actions; unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims; breach of contract claims; unfair competition claims; trade secret misappropriation claims; and traditional labor law disputes. On the transactional-side, I have extensive experience advising clients on the labor and employment aspects of business transactions, as well as structuring, negotiating and drafting employment agreements, consultant agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, arbitration agreements, severance agreements, collective bargaining agreements, and all labor and employment components of corporate transaction agreements. I have been part of deal teams that have been recognized with California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year (CLAY) awards for innovative lawyering, including: a 2016 award for the team’s representation of Broadcom Corporation in its acquisition by Avago Technologies; and a 2018 award for my team's representation of Intel Corporation in its $15.3 billion acquisition of Mobileye, N.V. I have been very fortunate to work with and learn the intricacies of companies in a variety of industries, including sports, media and entertainment, technology, financial services, asset management, food and beverage, hospitality, security services, and retail.
