Morgan Lewis has added labor/management relations lawyer Mark Stolzenburg, a former field attorney at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), as a partner resident in Chicago.
“Businesses of all sizes across the full range of industries rely on our leading labor and employment practice for trusted advice on navigating labor-management issues in both union and nonunion workplaces,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “Mark’s impressive skillset and first-hand knowledge of these critical matters, along with his collaborative work style, make him a strong fit for our deep bench of lawyers with a long tradition of government service as well as for our clients who look for true partnerships in navigating complex regulatory landscapes.”
Mark focuses on representing management across various industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics, on a variety of issues. He negotiates collective bargaining agreements, represents employers in labor arbitrations, assists with union organizing and decertification campaigns, and counsels employers on day-to-day issues regarding labor/management relations. Mark represents employers before the NLRB, handles labor-related litigation in federal and state courts, and represents employers in disputes with union Taft-Hartley pension and benefit funds.
“With his ‘in the trenches’ experience, particularly before the NLRB, Mark will be a great asset to our clients,” said Grace Speights, leader of the firm’s global labor and employment practice. “Mark will have a day-one impact as he seamlessly integrates into our labor/management relations team, many of whom served as members of the NLRB and other regulatory bodies within the labor field.”
