Barbara and her partners pioneered the firm’s nationally-ranked executive advocacy practice which focuses on the legal needs of executives, professionals and select businesses in sophisticated employment matters. Since 2014, Chambers USA has recognized her as a Leader in the Field of Labor & Employment, Mainly Plaintiffs Representation. According to Chambers, she handles "complex situations and short timeframes" with "the most amazing intellectual horsepower." Listed in Super Lawyers since 2005, Barbara was also selected as a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America in 2015, and named in "Best Lawyers in America" again in 2017. Barbara represents clients in a wide range of employment and compensation matters, including employment and change-in-control agreements, executive compensation, deferred and equity compensation, confidentiality obligations, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements, severance, retirement agreements, and buyouts of equity interests. She has successfully represented clients in complex, multi seven- and eight-figure matters. Her work includes claims for breach of contract, violations of the Massachusetts Wage Act, violations of the laws prohibiting discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, whistleblower claims, and violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Our vision is to foster and strengthen connections in our wonderful neighborhood. We would love to have you and other women of all ages in the South End be a part of our conversation. Please invite a neighbor if you think she would be interested in joining the Ellis and would enjoy being a part of this special evening. Please rsvp below as space is limited.
We look forward to seeing you.
