Arthur Telegen is a partner at Seyfarth Shaw in the firm’s Labor and Employee Relations Practice Group. He specializes in union-management relations, representing clients in federal court and before the National Labor Relations Board, at arbitration, and in collective bargaining.


Mr. Telegen is halfway through his fifth decade practicing labor law. While he continues to win major cases for his clients, this past year in the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of New Hampshire, what he finds most satisfying is getting a phone call presenting a knotty issue with its union, and colaborating on finding the best way to untangle the knot.
