Fisher Phillips Enters Ohio; Millisor + Nobil Attorneys Join National Labor and Employment Law Firm
ATLANTA & CLEVELAND (April 18, 2011) - Fisher Phillips announces its expansion into the State of Ohio, as the attorneys and staff of Millisor + Nobil join the firm. Nineteen attorneys from the Ohio labor and employment firm join Fisher Phillips effective April 16.
Fisher Phillips Chairman and Managing Partner Roger Quillen said: "The attorneys who are joining us are the right fit for our firm. Like everyone at Fisher Phillips, these Ohio attorneys are committed to bringing value to our clients through practical advice and litigation strategies. Also like us, the attorneys from Millisor + Nobil focus on one thing providing excellent representation to employers in labor and employment matters. Our clients will benefit from the experience they bring to every matter they manage."
Steven Nobil, managing partner of the Cleveland office, added: "We've discussed transactions like this with most of the national labor and employment boutiques, but have always chosen to remain independent. In Fisher Phillips, however, we found a firm much like ourselves with the additional benefit of a national scope. Also like us, Fisher Phillips has a clear dedication to providing value to their clients. That helped to convince us this was the firm that best suited the way we work with clients. The collegial atmosphere at the firm is something rarely found in such a large organization. Our clients will be pleased when they begin to work with our new partners and associates."
Ken Millisor and Steve Nobil formed their law firm in 1975 with a focus on the notion that preventing problems is the best way to solve them. Millisor + Nobil attorneys have a strong background in traditional labor law. Nobil pointed out: "Employers, whether unionized or union free, need to find creative ways to reduce labor costs and increase productivity and still maintain positive relationships with their employees. With that in mind, we have negotiated hundreds of union contracts that achieved those objectives and have advised hundreds of union free employers on how to accomplish the same." In addition, the firm has a Risk Management Group that helps employers reduce costs related to workers compensation claims.
Millisor, who is retiring from the firm, expressed satisfaction that the Millisor + Nobil philosophy will live on as an integral part of Fisher Phillips.
