McDermott Will & Emery LLP - Partner, Co-Chair of Firm's Global Privacy and Cybersecurity Group
McDermott, Will & Emery, LLP, 2016 to present; Partner, Locke Lord LLP, 2015 to 2016; Edwards Wildman Palmer, LLP, 2011-2015 (then merged with Locke Lord LLP); Partner, Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge, LLP, 2005-11 (then merged with Wildman Harold); Partner, Palmer & Dodge LLP, 1998-05 (then merged with Edwards Angell) ; Partner, Gadsby & Hannah LLP, 1994-97; Partner, Schreiber & McKelway, P.C., 1983-94; Partner, Katz & Schreiber, 1982-1983; Associate, Bove, Katz & Charmoy, 1980-81; Chief Trial Counsel, Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, 1975-79.
Previously on MCAD/AAA Arbitration Program Panel for discrimination cases, Boston, mid-1990's to end of program, approx. 2000. Mediated four cases under AAA administered program for Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Policy 96-1 on ADR. Most other mediations have involved employment discrimination under c. 151B, Title VII, ADA, ADEA, etc. in late 1990's, and others less formally and more recently in employment and harassment matters, contract, bonus, and terminations, and the like, as well as EU/US data protection and privacy matters (referenced below). Industries included life sciences, healthcare, pharmaceutical/medical device, financial services and hospitality/hotels.
Age, sex, sexual harassment, disability, race, retaliation and other employment discrimination and common law employment issues and claims under state and federal law, in hiring, firing, and terms and conditions. Issues include shifting burdens of proof, damages, and psychiatric evidence/diagnosis, mitigation.

Data protection and privacy matters under U.S. law, including ECPA, FCRA, HIPAA, GLB, and under E.U. law, including E.U. data protection laws, such as France, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Issues encompass cross-border data transfer, dual compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and E.U. country data protection, and differing perspectives on privacy, privacy compliance, oversight and enforcement.
As a management employment lawyer at a large firm, mediated and settled numerous employment, harassment, and discrimination cases; attended and participated in at least 15 mediations, mostly in the employment discrimination field but also in the medical malpractice area.
Many labor and employment matters, including discrimination and harassment ones, can be settled if both parties are so inclined. Identifying the commonality of interests or intersection of the parties' respective positions and goals is often key to this process. The plaintiff may need to be "heard" before resolution is possible and the company may be willing to resolve the matter on reasonable but not excessive terms. In the submissions and risk assessment, I expect the parties in these cases to give rigorous attention to applicable burdens of proof and actual expected evidence.

In EU and other data protection matters for companies with global or multi-national operations the key is reconciling the different laws, practices and compliance concerns while being sensitive to various cross-border and cross-cultural approaches to the same or similar dilemmas.
