Maslon is pleased to announce that Melissa Muro LaMere, partner in Maslon's Labor & Employment Group, has been featured in Minnesota Lawyer's POWER 30: Employment Law. POWER 30 is a new regular feature that examines the power brokers who lead and influence various parts of the Minnesota legal community, with a focus on those whose mere presence on a case signifies the stakes, who have influenced the direction of the law, whose leadership in the community is pervasive, and whose respect within the bar is undeniable.
Noted in the related feature article for her representation of clients in employment disputes and in business-to-business disputes, Melissa shares, "the issues haven't really changed." She states she "helps her clients avoid an 'us versus them' approach in favor of maintaining positive relationships, protecting the talent and making the company grow."
