Best Lawyers, the respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Wayne Norris Outten of Outten & Golden LLP as the "New York Best Lawyers Labor and Employment Lawyer of the Year" for 2010.

We continue to believe - as we have believed for more than 25 years - that recognition by one's peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Wayne Norris Outten on being selected as the 'New York Best Lawyers Labor and Employment Lawyer of the Year' for 2010.

Starting in 2010 (after more than a quarter of a century in publication), Best Lawyers is designating "Lawyers of the Year" in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the "Lawyer of the Year." The initial recipient of that honor in New York for the field of labor and employment law is Wayne N. Outten.

Mr. Outten is the founding and managing partner of Outten & Golden LLP Outten & Golden LLP, which focuses exclusively on representing employees (from executives and professionals to moderate-and-low income workers) in all areas of employment law, including employment and separation agreements, discrimination and retaliation claims, wage-and-hour claims, and WARN Act claims. Mr. Outten is co-head of the firm's Executives and Professionals Practice Group. He was a founding director of the National Employment Lawyers Association, founded its New York affiliate, was a member of the first board of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, and has held countless positions in those and other bar-related organizations.

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 16th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2010), is based on more than 2.8 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as "Lawyers of the Year" have received particularly high ratings in our surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Steven Naifeh, Managing Editor of Best Lawyers, says, "We continue to believe - as we have believed for more than 25 years - that recognition by one's peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Wayne Norris Outten on being selected as the 'New York Best Lawyers Labor and Employment Lawyer of the Year' for 2010."
