Craig Thorstenson Named a 2015 Illinois Super Lawyer

Date   Jan 12, 2015

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country's largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that Chicago-based Partner Craig Thorstenson has been selected for the 2015 Illinois Super Lawyer list.

Super Lawyers recognizes attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice. Attorneys are chosen 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.  Only five percent of attorneys in the state of Illinois are selected for inclusion in "Super Lawyers."

Craig concentrates his practice in the litigation of employment disputes and providing related counseling. His experience includes defending numerous WARN Act, FLSA and Title VII class actions, prosecuting and defending actions over restrictive covenants, and handling complex labor arbitrations. He regularly acts as "in-house" employment counsel for several companies that elect to outsource their employment work. Earlier in his career, Craig formed a partnership specializing in employment discrimination, primarily from the plaintiff's side, an experience that gives him a unique perspective when counseling and litigating.

Craig is a member of FordHarrison's Executive Committee, oversees the firm's offices in the Upper Midwest, and serves as the Managing Partner of the firm's Chicago office.
