Fisher Phillips Partner Named "Employment Lawyer Under 40 to Watch"
PORTLAND, OR (March 24, 2011) – Portland Managing Partner Rich Meneghello has been selected by Law360 as an "Employment Lawyer Under 40 to Watch."
Rich was appointed to the regional managing partner position in 2009. Since then he has taken an active role in supervising the eight employment attorneys based in the Portland office. "I'm very honored that the firm gave me this responsibility at such an early stage in my career. I've been treated like an equal among all the other managing partners, including those who were managing offices when I wasn't even in law school yet."
Rich has won several important employment litigation victories for major companies. He said he finds his court victories satisfying not only professionally but also personally, since he gets to know the employers he defends on a personal level as the cases progress.
"Rich has been instrumental in building our presence in the Northwest," Fisher Phillips chairman Roger Quillen said. "In addition to being a top-notch lawyer, Rich understands the business of law."
