Jones Day named Labor & Employment Department of the Year by New York Law Journal

October 2017


Jones Day was awarded the Labor & Employment Department of the Year honor from the New York Law Journal. Matt Lampe, co-leader of the Firm’s Labor & Employment (L&E) Practice, accepted the award on behalf of the Firm at the annual New York Legal Awards Professional Excellence program in New York City. This program honors firms across six areas of litigation practice in New York. "We take exceptional pride when the good work we do on behalf of our clients anywhere in the world is recognized and it is even more gratifying when that recognition happens in New York," said Michael Gray, co-leader of Jones Day’s Labor & Employment Practice.

With more than 130 lawyers, 15 of which are in New York, Jones Day's L&E practice represents employers in virtually every type of employment dispute, including high stakes litigation on behalf of some of the largest and most prominent companies in the nation. The practice has especially deep experience in employment class actions, wage and hour collective actions, complex traditional labor matters before the NLRB, and single plaintiff discrimination matters. Because employment litigation challenges often target existing policies and practices, Jones Day L&E lawyers proactively counsel clients on ways to improve litigation avoidance strategies while maintaining their focus on business objectives. The Firm's approach to L&E litigation is based first and foremost on fully understanding the client's individual goals for the conduct of the litigation and developing tailored strategies to achieve those goals. Our multi-office effort and seamless collaboration across practices and jurisdictions allow us to bring the best of the practice and the Firm to every client engagement.
