In its third year, we have selected 10 additional legends for the Hall of Fame of the employment bar whose contributions to the field as well as their firms are unparalleled. Very few lawyers are considered for Hall of Fame status — which begins with 35 years in the employment-law trenches and requires consistent recognition for all-around excellence in counseling clients, contributing to the bar and serving as a visionary to improve workplaces. Up to 10 lawyers will be added to the Hall of Fame each year and retired from future consideration.
