I am delighted by the opportunity to work alongside Ernest Greer, David Long-Daniels and Todd Wozniak in the firm’s Atlanta Labor & Employment Practice and to become a member of a dynamic and growing office.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP announced that Erik Rodriguez has joined the firm’s Atlanta office as a shareholder in the Labor & Employment Practice. Rodriguez joins Greenberg Traurig from Seyfarth Shaw, LLP, where he was a partner in the Labor & Employment Department.
Rodriguez represents employers in proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and defends employment cases in state and federal courts. He also provides labor and employment law drafting and counseling, and serves as a management trainer.
“I am delighted by the opportunity to work alongside Ernest Greer, David Long-Daniels and Todd Wozniak in the firm’s Atlanta Labor & Employment Practice and to become a member of a dynamic and growing office,” said Rodriguez. “In addition, Greenberg Traurig’s national platform enables me to offer my clients a wide range of services in a multitude of markets.” Greer is Managing Shareholder of the Atlanta office and Co-Chair of the Atlanta Litigation Practice. Long-Daniels is Chair of the Atlanta Labor & Employment Practice. Wozniak is a shareholder in the Atlanta Labor & Employment Practice.
Greenberg Traurig’s Labor & Employment Practice is comprised of more than 100 professionals who provide an array of workplace strategies and legal counsel to clients in a variety of industries. The firm’s Atlanta Labor & Employment Practice was listed in Chambers & Partners USA, 2011. Notably, Long-Daniels and Greer recently obtained a defense verdict in a well-publicized race discrimination jury trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia filed by former NBA star Joe Barry Carroll.
“We’re extremely pleased to have Erik join our team and excited to continue to enhance our labor and employment capabilities in Atlanta,” said Long-Daniels. “Erik’s practice will be a true asset to the firm.”
“We are highly focused on the expansion of the Atlanta team and are delighted by Erik’s joining us,” said Greer. “In the last six weeks we added shareholders to two other Atlanta practices, and we look forward to continued growth.”
The hiring of Rodriquez follows the recent additions of Kurt Erskine as a shareholder in the White Collar Litigation Practice and Dan Sherman as a shareholder in the firm's Public-Private Partnership, Infrastructure & Economic Development Practice.
