Ed devotes a significant amount of time to representing educational institutions, including Columbia University, New York University, Yale University and Polytechnic Institute. He has served as lead counsel in numerous employee representation and unfair labor practice cases before the National Labor Relations Board, and employment litigation involving faculty, senior administrators and staff. He has represented each of these institutions in disputes involving union efforts to organize graduate student teaching and research assistants.
