DLA Piper’s San Francisco Group Gets a Boost
Summary: A group of three lawyers recently joined DLA Piper in their San Francisco Employment practice.
A team of three lawyers joined DLA Piper in San Francisco. Ron Holland, Ellen Bronchetti and Pankit Doshi are bringing extensive experience to the Employment practice. They join from Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton.
Holland, Doshi, and Bronchetti will represent employers in federal and state wage and hour, whistleblower, harassment, trade secret misappropriation, wrongful termination, statutory leave, discrimination, breach of contract, and retaliation claims. They work with employers to prevent employee-related problems from becoming lawsuits with manager and employee training, advising on hiring and termination issues, and strengthening workplace policies and procedures.
Northern California regional managing partner and member of DLA Piper’s Global Board Sang Kim said, “Ron, Ellen, and Pankit are among the top practitioners in their field and bring years of experience that will further strengthen our Labor and Employment practice and provide key insight to clients from around the world. Further, this group understands the nuances and complexities of California, which continues to be at the forefront of employment law issues, including wage and hour, misclassification, pay equity, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and harassment and discrimination matters.”
Their clients come from a variety of industries, including airline, entertainment, automotive, healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, hospitality, retail, technology, pharmaceuticals, transportation, and telecommunications.
DLA Piper’s global co-chair of Employment and chair of the US Employment practice Michael Sheehan said, “Ron, Ellen and Pankit are a terrific team and we’re excited to add this talented group. Ron and Ellen are among the top traditional labor lawyers in the country and they add a significant depth to our nationwide labor practice. Their collective leadership and skills advising clients in both traditional markets and the gig economy, paired with DLA Piper’s global platform, will provide a tremendous value for our clients.”
