SAN DIEGO (July 9, 2018) – Fisher Phillips announces that Partner Danielle H. Moore has been named chair of the firm’s Development Committee. The Development Committee works closely with the firm’s marketing department to lead institutional efforts in branding, marketing and business development.

“When looking at candidates, we wanted to select a leader who has demonstrated a commitment to the firm and to its advancement and development,” said Roger K.

Danielle’s experience as co-chair of the firm’s Women’s Initiative and Leadership Council will set her up for great success in this new role. We are proud to have her leading the committee forward.”
A partner in the firm’s San Diego office, Danielle represents employers in all aspects of labor and employment law, including discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation and wage-and-hour class action lawsuits. She also counsels clients on employment handbook and personnel policy preparation and general preventive advice including hiring, discipline and termination practices. In 2013, Danielle co-founded the Women’s Initiative and Leadership Council, a firm-wide initiative to advance and develop the role of women in the firm and in the legal profession, and she continues to serve as co-chair.
“I am honored and excited to take up this position. Jim has done a marvelous job in the role for nearly two decades. Under his leadership, the committee, has helped establish the firm as one of the most respected in the industry,” said Danielle. “Jim will continue to be a trusted advisor and influential voice for the committee, and together, we will continue to build upon his work.”
Jim added: “It has been an honor to work with the firm’s Development Committee all these years, but I know that the group will continue to help grow the firm with Danielle at the helm. She’s a terrific choice to lead this important group.”
