Jones Waldo congratulates Mike O’Brien on being selected by Human Resource Executive and Lawdragon as one of the nation’s top corporate employment attorneys for 2019.
The competition, now in its 12th year, involved an exhaustive selection process handled jointly by HRE, which goes out to more than 75,000 top-ranking human resource executives, and Lawdragon, the New York-based networking site used by more than 300,000 leading lawyers and judges throughout the United States.
Earlier this year, HRE and Lawdragon solicited nominations for our list of the nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys representing corporate America and researched potential candidates in Lawdragon’s extensive database. After careful vetting, we arrived at our top 220 selections, including 60 specialists in immigration, employee benefits and ERISA, and labor law. In addition, 20 attorneys have been named to our Hall of Fame and 40 up-and-comers (lawyers likely to make the top 100 and specialty lists in the near future) were recognized. Our criteria included a number of attributes, such as recent headline clients or cases; proven leadership, either as a thought leader or as the chair of a firm’s labor and employment group; affiliations and associations in peer-selected organizations; and other accomplishments, such as noteworthy publications and speaking circuits.
O’Brien heads the Jones Waldo Employment Law group. They are consistently ranked among the best in Utah and nation-wide.
