February 27, 2019 – Morrison Cohen LLP announced today that Keith A. Markel has been elected to join Jeffrey P. Englander as co-chair of the firm’s enhanced Labor and Employment Law Department.

Strongly committed to its clients’ increasing employment needs and challenges, Morrison Cohen is enhancing and expanding its Labor and Employment Law Department. The team counsels businesses of all sizes and individuals in connection with their day-to-day employment concerns, focusing not only on the many federal, state and local workplace laws and regulations, but on each employer’s business and operational objectives, as well as addressing issues specific to management and senior-level employees.

The department’s comprehensive approach includes strategic counseling, preventative guidance, training, and representation in formal proceedings before federal and state courts, in arbitration forums, and before various administrative agencies.

The Labor and Employment Law Department has a particular focus on the rapidly evolving New York state and New York City employment laws, regularly advising clients on new employment laws and guidelines.
