FordHarrison LLP, one of the country's largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce the addition of Daniel E. Waldman and Jesse G. Pauker to our Global Legal Services practice group. Dan and Jesse come to FordHarrison from Waldman Law LLC. Dan joins the firm as Partner in the firm's New York City and San Francisco offices. Jesse joins the firm as Senior Associate in the firm's New York City office.

"We are excited to have Dan and Jesse join our firm," said Stephen Zweig, Managing Partner of the New York office. "They bring to the New York office a wealth of experience in addressing employment matters for multi-national companies on a global scale, which will greatly benefit clients of the New York office and the firm as a whole."

Dan's practice focuses on global employment law.  His client base is comprised of global companies ranging from mature start-ups to Fortune 100 companies across a broad spectrum of industries. Dan focuses on all aspects of international employment matters, from day-to-day counseling to managing billion dollar transactions impacting tens of thousands of employees.  Dan also provides California clients with employment law counseling and advice.
