Loeb & Loeb has continued to strengthen its employment and labour department with the arrival of former Fisher Phillips partner Sarina Saluja in Los Angeles.
“The department has enjoyed significant success in defending international and domestic clients in high-profile, complex employment litigations over the past few years. The addition of Sarina to our team will only serve to expand those successes,” said Michelle La Mar, chair of the firm’s employment and labour practice.
“Sarina is a seasoned employment lawyer whose broad skill set and wealth of knowledge on a wide variety of labour and employment issues will be a tremendous asset to our clients.”
Saluja brings more than a decade of experience representing employers in a wide range of employment- and labour-related litigation, including discrimination claims, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour violations, wrongful termination, workplace privacy, data security, unfair competition, trade secret theft, and corporate espionage.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sarina to Loeb,” said Alyse Pelavin, managing partner of Loeb’s LA office. “She is widely recognised as a leader in the labour and employment area, and her joining further expands the depth of Loeb’s employment and labour capabilities and the breadth of services we can offer our clients.”
Saluja’s arrival continues the expansion of Loeb’s employment and labour offering. In January, the firm welcomed Ian Carleton Schaefer from Epstein Becker & Green, who will serve as chair of the New York office’s employment and labour group.
“Loeb & Loeb is well known for its focused, proactive counsel and the ability to interpret and respond effectively to today’s rapidly changing employment laws,” said Saluja.
“The team has advised clients on some of the most cutting-edge employment issues, and I am excited to collaborate with such an impressive group.”
