Daily Journal Names Chopra and Siegel Top Labor & Employment LawyersJuly 25, 2016
Daily Journal's 2016 Top Labor & Employment Lawyers feature, released July 20, 2016, highlights O'Melveny partners Apalla Chopra and Bob Siegel. Chopra said in her profile that while she has handled a variety of lawsuits, negotiations, and internal investigations for her clients, one of her favorite jobs is consulting with them on their employment policies.
“Correctly designing a workforce that is legally compliant but also ensures a company's ability to efficiently achieve their business goals is both challenging and exciting,” Chopra told Daily Journal.
The publication notes that Siegel was selected to head O’Melveny’s new Aviation Practice.
“Working with the airlines and airports as much as we have, we felt we could provide better and more efficient service by having an organized group,” he said.
Chopra is Chair of O’Melveny’s Labor & Employment Practice, and a member of the Firm’s Executive and Policy Committees. Siegel, a former Chair of O’Melveny’s Litigation Department and Vice-Chair of the Firm, focuses his practice on representing major companies in federal court litigation under the Railway Labor Act and the National Labor Relations Act, arbitrations, labor negotiations, National Mediation Board and National Labor Relations Board matters, and employment law litigation and counseling.
