SAN FRANCISCO – FordHarrison LLP, one of the country’s largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that Tim Reed has been selected as a member of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) 2019 class of Fellows, a landmark program created by LCLD to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.

“This is a great opportunity for Tim. Through this fellowship, he will have the chance to learn and grow alongside a unique and diverse group of his peers,” said Dawn Siler-Nixon, FordHarrison’s Diversity and Inclusion Partner.

Tim’s legal practice is focused on the defense of employers in legal disputes in state court, in federal court, and before administrative agencies. He has spent his ten-year legal career defending employers against a wide range of employment law claims, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation, and claims for violations of wage-and-hour laws. To help employers avoid costly employment law litigation and administrative agency compliance issues, Tim regularly provides his clients with preventive counsel regarding workplace policies and personnel management issues. 

Tim has resolved numerous matters to the satisfaction of clients in various industries, including by disposing of claims at summary judgment, obtaining favorable rulings from administrative agencies, and successfully engaging in mediation and informal settlement discussions. In light of the constantly evolving employment law landscape, Tim devotes much of his time to keeping abreast of emerging legislative and legal developments that impact his clients’ employment practices. Tim has co-authored numerous articles published in The Daily Recorder covering a breadth of employment law issues.
