Michelman & Robinson, LLP
Marc B. Zimmerman is a partner in M&R’s New York office. A premier management-side labor and employment attorney and leader of M&R's Employment Litigation Practice Group, Marc believes a great lawyer must take time to understand each client’s business and anticipate, as well as address, their specific needs. He does just that, and his hands-on approach to legal representation enables him to partner with his clients and build lasting relationships.
In terms of his practice, Marc advises clients on a wide range of labor relations and business issues, including wage and hour compliance, discipline, management training, policy development, reductions in force, investigations, discrimination, harassment, retaliation and whistleblower and unemployment claims. He is also a sought-after negotiator and routinely assists management and executives in drafting and reviewing employment contracts, restrictive covenants and executive compensation issues. There is more. Marc serves as a chief negotiator in collective bargaining agreements and has represented employers in hundreds of arbitration hearings.
No matter the forum – federal and state courts, contract arbitration, Departments of Labor, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, New York State Division of Human Rights (and various other state and city human rights agencies) or the National Labor Relations Board – Marc is a highly skilled practitioner with an expansive portfolio of representative clients. Indeed, his clientele spans a range of industries, such as luxury goods, fashion, retail, automotive, manufacturing, real estate, building services, finance, education and health care. And given his fluency in local and federal labor and employment law, he is frequently called upon as a speaker and writer, and has been published and/or extensively quoted in Women's Wear Daily, Workforce Magazine, Corporate Counsel, Inside Counsel, Human Resource Executive Magazine, Inc. Magazine, and on Law360.com, MSNBC.com and the Associated Press.
