Stephen Hirschfeld Profiled in Lawdragon’s “Lawyer Limelight”

Stephen Hirschfeld was honored by Lawdragon as one of 2018’s “Most Powerful Employment Lawyers.” He was profiled in Lawdragon’s September 2018 issue, and online here.

In the profile, Steve was asked what inspired him to found the Employment Law Alliance:

“I love to build and run things, and I’m especially interested in unconventional approaches. Twenty years ago, I left a “Big Law” firm and started my own labor and employment boutique. My goal was to combine innovative techniques with time-honored traditions to create cost-effective, timely solutions. Many of my clients had operations in multiple states and countries, so as I was building the firm, I looked for creative solutions to deal with cross-jurisdictional employment issues. In the process, I kept meeting talented local labor and employment attorneys at firms large and small, all over the U.S., who were similarly dedicated to the same principles, but seeking access to a larger platform. And it wasn’t just U.S. lawyers, this was a global phenomenon – I discovered there were many outstanding, ethical, diligent, labor and employment attorneys worldwide looking to leverage a larger referral network in order to provide advice to multi-national employers. The entrepreneur in me kicked in, and I dreamed up and implemented a strategy to create a truly global and seamless provider of employment law services via the Employment Law Alliance.”
