FordHarrison LLP, a national labor and employment law firm, is pleased to announce that Suheily Natal, a senior associate in the firm's Chicago office, has been selected to the "2013 Illinois Rising Stars" list.
Natal focuses her practice on representing management in a wide array of litigation and employment matters. In her practice, she handles allegations of sexual harassment, disability discrimination, FMLA violations, race and national origin discrimination, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, wrongful discharge, and violation of wage and hour and wage payment laws. She also drafts and reviews employment policies, employment contracts and employee handbooks. She provides regular counseling on the day-to-day issues that invariably arise in the workplace. Natal received her J.D. from DePaul University College of Law in 2007.
Attorneys are selected for this honor through a statewide nomination process, peer review by practice area and independent research on candidates. The rigorous process is designed to identify lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The Rising Stars list recognizes those who are 40 years old or younger or those who have been practicing for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the list.
