Lorie Almon Selected by The American Lawyer as One of the Top 45 Women Under 45


In its January 2011 issue, The American Lawyer magazine selected employment partner Lorie Almon as one of the top 45 women lawyers in the country under 45. The magazine described Lorie, the head of the New York L&E practice and co-managing partner of the 110-lawyer New York office, as having a national reputation for defending large companies in labor and employment class actions, having led or co-led about 50 such cases in the past five years. The article described Lorie’s knack for persuading juries in tough cases and venues and her ability to build relationships with co-defense counsel and across the aisle in a motions-heavy practice. The magazine also focused on Lorie’s meteoric rise through the ranks and how she has been instrumental in building the firm’s Labor & Employment practice in New York.
