PHOENIX – August 11, 2020 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has expanded its award-winning Labor and Employment Practice in Phoenix with the addition of Stephanie J. Quincy and Lindsay J. Fiore.
“We are thrilled to welcome these two talented attorneys,” noted Greenberg Traurig Labor & Employment Practice Co-Chair Naomi G. Beer. “In this time of unprecedented uncertainty due to the global pandemic, experienced attorneys like Stephanie and Lindsay are well positioned to help companies navigate new and complex labor and employment challenges.”
“The addition of highly skilled attorneys such as Stephanie and Lindsay demonstrate Greenberg Traurig’s commitment to hiring top-tier practitioners,” said Phoenix Managing Shareholder Nicole Goodwin. “Their experience and reputation as leading labor and employment attorneys enhance the firm’s robust Labor and Employment Practice and further strengthen our dynamic Phoenix office.”
Quincy utilizes her deep experience handling high profile litigation including class action and multi-plaintiff lawsuits to represent clients in employment litigation matters. She counsels employers on a variety of employment law matters, including covenants not to compete, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and defamation. Stephanie also represents employers in administrative matters, including discrimination and harassment charges and wage and hour complaints before state and federal agencies such as the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance.
Fiore is an experienced trial lawyer with a national practice. She regularly defends clients throughout the country against claims related to age, race, gender, and disability discrimination, as well as sexual harassment, hostile work environment, retaliation, whistleblower allegations, and wage and hour issues. Fiore also represents employers in suits brought by the EEOC and has defended employers against unfair labor practice charges.
Both Quincy and Fiore provide guidance on COVID-19-related challenges faced by employers, including remote workforce policies, procedures and training, employee safety, reductions in force, furloughs and layoffs, family and medical leave due to coronavirus or childcare interruptions, ADA accommodations, and the WARN Act. They guide employers who face legal claims related to the pandemic to minimize their potential litigation risks, and advise on return to work issues of pay, hours scheduling, masks, and health screening.
“Greenberg Traurig has an unequalled geographic reach and well-earned reputation in the field of labor and employment law,” Quincy and Fiore said in a joint statement. “The firm offers a collaborative culture across multiple practice areas that will benefit our clients greatly, at a time when labor and employment issues are center stage in Arizona and across the United States.”
