SCM NEWS & OPINIONS

SCM Lawyers John Gates and Ruth Shapiro included in The Best Lawyers® Employment Law Issue

Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, has just released the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers® Employment Law Issue.

This Employment Law issue applauds the work of top legal professionals protecting both businesses and employees. Using information excerpted from the 2021 editions of The Best Lawyers in America© and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, this stand-alone publication features more than 8,000 lawyers, including more than 1,000 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch honorees and 400 “Lawyer of the Year” award recipients.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an uptick in Employment Law related class action suits. This publication provides editorial content covering recent Employment Law litigation topics including multilevel marketing companies, vaccine liability for restaurant owners, workers’ compensation claims by employees who contracted COVID-19 on the job, a future with cryptocurrency and workplace harassment in 2021.

Lawyers who are nominated for consideration are voted on by currently recognized Best Lawyers working in the same practice area and located in the same geographic region. Our awards and recognitions are based purely on the feedback we receive from these top lawyers. Lawyers are not allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo a thorough verification process to make sure they are currently still in private practice. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers.

Congratulations to John E. Gates and Ruth A. Shapiro who were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers™ in America 2021 in the fields of Employment Law.
