JUNE 28, 2018 – Laura Sack, co-chair of the East Coast Labor and Employment practice group at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, has been elected to the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers as a Fellow.

Election as a Fellow signifies that Laura has distinguished herself as an outstanding attorney who has made a sustained contribution to the practice area and who meets the College’s high standards of integrity, professionalism, and character.

Laura will be formally installed as a Fellow later this year in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section.

Laura has more than 25 years’ experience representing management in a wide variety of employment matters, and her clients include some of the most prominent employers in media, publishing, financial services, retail, marketing, and the nonprofit sector. She regularly litigates cases before state and federal courts, defends clients before administrative agencies, designs and conducts employee training programs, conducts workplace investigations, and serves as a trusted advisor and counselor to management in connection with personnel matters.

Laura is consistently ranked in industry publications as a leading lawyer in her field. Chambers USA’s 2018 directory reports that clients commend her as “above and beyond in responsiveness and ability to talk through situations in a down-to-earth and understandable language,” and say she is “incredibly smart, quick-witted, funny, and fearless.”

Laura came to Davis Wright Tremaine in 2015 after working as a management-side employment lawyer at several other well-regarded law firms in New York. She has also previously served as in-house labor and employment counsel and as a New York City public school teacher, and she applies the skills and sensitivities she developed in those settings for the benefit of her clients today.

Laura joins other Fellows at Davis Wright Tremaine, including firmwide employment practice chair Mark Berry of our Bellevue office; Henry Farber, also in Bellevue; Seattle partners Robert Blackstone, Mark Hutcheson, Michael Killeen, and Michael Reiss; Los Angeles partner John LeCrone; and San Francisco partners Jeff Bosley and Judith Keyes.
