Partners Grace Speights and David McManus are quoted in a Law360 article on the firm’s labor and employment team, which was named among the publication’s 2022 Employment Groups of the Year. David discussed the firm’s role in the historic US Soccer collective bargaining negotiations, crediting partner Nicole Buffalano for leading the Morgan Lewis team that coordinated with the client on the complex and closely watched negotiations.
"It was an environment that was highly charged because of the views of the constituents, particularly the women's team, and the backdrop of the high-profile litigation. A lot of this was done in a fishbowl," David said.
Grace discussed the group’s track record of employer investigations, including those into sexual harassment—something that helps “our clients figure out…what they need to be looking at doing to make their workplaces safe, inclusive and respectful.”
