Within: Labor-management relations

The 'exceptional' labor team at Proskauer Rose LLP has a particularly strong track record when it comes to representing US professional sports leagues in collective bargaining negotiations. It covers the full gamut of the law, with clients appreciating the group for 'providing excellent advice in every aspect of labor and employment'. The New York-based Elise Bloom and Neil Abramson jointly chair the department. The latter, who is also the head of the public sector group, negotiated a collective bargaining settlement for the City of New York with the Police Benevolent Association. Paul Salvatore and Zachary Fasman in New York and Chicago's Steven Pearlman have longstanding relations with a variety of universities, including Washington University, Yale University, and Cornell University, which they advise in labor law matters. Bernard Plum, Michael Lebowich, Joseph Baumgarten, Howard Robbins and senior counsel Steven Porzio are other key contacts in New York, while Boston's Scott Faust and Los Angeles' Mark Theodore are also names to note.
