Four New York-Based FordHarrison Attorneys Named to 2014 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars Lists

Date   Sep 23, 2014

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country's largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that Philip K. Davidoff, Eric Su, and Stephen Zweig, Partners in the firm's New York office, have been selected to the 2014 "New York Metro Super Lawyers" list. 
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.  Only five percent of attorneys in the state of New York are named "Super Lawyers."

This list recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state -- those who are 40 years old or younger, or those who have been practicing for 10 years or less.  While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.

Phil Davidoff represents management in employment law matters, including claims involving discrimination, sexual harassment, wage & hour laws, family and medical leave laws, breach of contract, restrictive covenants and common law torts. He has defended litigations in federal and state courts and administrative agencies across the United States, as well as in arbitrations before the National Association of Securities Dealers, FINRA and the American Arbitration Association. He also regularly counsels employers on all aspects of employment law and workplace issues.

Eric Su represents employers in employment disputes before federal and state courts, administrative agencies as well as in arbitrations. His practice mainly involves representing management in all aspects of labor and employment law, including investigations by federal and state labor departments; Davis-Bacon Act (and Related Acts), Service Contract Act and state prevailing wage claims defense; defending and prosecuting restrictive covenant claims; counseling management in all facets of workplace fraud investigations, including but not limited to, forensic accounting and IT investigations; Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage law claims litigation; collective bargaining negotiations and other union-related issues; defense of union benefit fund compliance audits and underpayment claims; implementation of workplace policies; negotiation of general employment and separation agreements; management of reductions in force, including WARN compliance; and defense of workplace harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination claims.

Stephen Zweig practices in multiple areas of labor, employment and benefits law, including executive compensation, litigation, collective bargaining negotiations, and the representation of labor-management funds. For companies as well as senior executives, Stephen negotiates all types of employment agreements, including short and long form employment agreements, retention and consulting agreements, change-in-control agreements, separation agreements, and independent contractor agreements.  He derives his negotiating strategies and tactics from over 35 years of experience resolving employment and labor management disputes.
