Sidley partners Eric Kauffman and Katherine A. Roberts have been named to the Daily Journal’s 2022 “Top Labor & Employment Lawyers” list. The annual list recognizes California lawyers based on their work on recent significant cases, investigations, and transactions that had an impact on the larger world of labor and employment.
Eric focuses his practice on corporate employment matters, providing strategic support to the technology and life sciences sectors and their private equity and venture capital sponsors. He routinely advises clients on a wide array of issues, including transactional matters, mergers and acquisitions (both buy-side and sell-side), financings, spinoffs and divestitures, and equity structuring.
Katherine co-leads Sidley’s Labor, Employment and Immigration group. Kate’s experience extends to all aspects of employment litigation, counseling, and traditional labor matters. She routinely handles wage and hour class and collective actions involving state and federal overtime exemptions, meal and rest period claims and claims under the California Private Attorney General Act (PAGA).
