WASHINGTON, DC & LOS ANGELES, June 29, 2020: Morgan Lewis partners Chai Feldblum, Barbara Fitzgerald, Carrie Gonell, and Michael Puma have been elected as fellows of The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.

Carrie focuses her practice on complex employment litigation and counseling, regularly representing employers in the financial services, retail, and technology industries. Michael counsels clients on complex labor and employment litigation, particularly wage and hour class and collective actions, and noncompete and trade secrets litigation throughout the United States.
