Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of a group of lawyers to its Labor & Employment department in Atlanta, led by partners John L. Telford, Jr. and John A. “Jack” Lambremont. Both join Seyfarth from Littler Mendelson LLP, along with associates Kyllan Kershaw and Kaitlyn Whiteside, and bring a practice focused exclusively on traditional labor matters.
Telford and Lambremont work closely together and devote their practice to labor concerns, including union negotiations, collective bargaining, labor arbitrations, election campaigns, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proceedings, business restructuring, and matters under the Railway Labor Act.
“Both John and Jack are outstanding labor lawyers who we know well and who we have also had the opportunity to work closely with on a number of matters,” Seyfarth Labor & Employment chair Lisa Damon said. “They exemplify our client service philosophy and bolster the ranks of our nationally recognized labor practice.”
“We’re excited to have such an accomplished team of labor lawyers join us,” said Brad Livingston, chair of Seyfarth’s Labor practice. “It’s a perfect fit for us and a great opportunity for John and Jack to grow their practice and also provide their clients with a full-service platform.”
With more than 400 lawyers, Seyfarth’s national Labor & Employment department stands at the forefront of the employment industry, defending companies of all sizes at the epicenter of today’s largest, most complex, and strategic matters.
“John and Jack are a well-respected team and an important addition that further expands our Atlanta office,” said Steven Kennedy, managing partner of Seyfarth’s Atlanta office. “As this office continues to grow, this group brings an innovative energy and enthusiasm for collaboration that fits perfectly with our team here.”
Founded in 1996, Seyfarth’s Atlanta office has grown to more than 80 lawyers during the past two decades who practice in nearly all areas of the law. Led by Seyfarth’s Atlanta office, the firm is also lead counsel to Browning-Ferris Industries of California in its high-profile appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit regarding the NLRB’s controversial ruling that altered the joint employer criteria under the National Labor Relations Act.
