More About Philippe

In today's uncertain environment, leaders need to translate best practice management and compliance standards into plain language and simple action items for themselves and their changing workforces. Philippe's practical compliance messaging approach, embodied in Seyfarth at Work’s content, consulting, and training has resulted in EEOC and DOJ monitors (in consent decrees) concluding that the solutions' impacts are "wholly creative and successful."

As president of Seyfarth at Work, Philippe has played a leading role in developing an internationally recognized approach to cohesively link values-based compliance communications, which is now used throughout the ranks of the Fortune 500. He pioneered Seyfarth at Work's interactive and highly practical messaging and training delivery, which emphasizes real-world skill building and everyday language, and avoids "legalese."

In his career as an attorney, Philippe has represented both plaintiff and defense-side clients (as well as government agencies and high-profile individuals), and has appeared before federal and state courts and agencies.
