Labor Law Attorneys Todd Lyon and José Klein Added to Portland Office
PORTLAND, OR (February 18, 2015) — Fisher Phillips has bolstered its attorney ranks in the Pacific Northwest with the addition of partner Todd Lyon and associate attorney José Klein in its Portland, Oregon office. Lyon and Klein both join the firm from Barran Liebman LLP. Together, they come to Fisher Phillips with decades of experience representing public and private sector employers in traditional labor negotiations and arbitrations, and employment litigation and advice.
Lyon negotiates pro-employer collective bargaining agreements and has conducted hundreds of arbitration hearings with superior results concerning virtually every aspect of contract interpretation, discipline, union security, and interest arbitration. He has also successfully litigated before the National Labor Relations Board and state labor boards in both representation and unfair labor practice hearings. Lyon, a graduate of Hamline University School of Law, is listed in Oregon Super Lawyers Magazine.
Klein regularly advises clients on the interpretation of collective bargaining agreements and disciplinary matters so as to avoid grievances. He is an experienced negotiator in mediation, but also has litigated labor and employment matters in court and in arbitration settings with superior results to clients. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Klein also served as a Judicial Clerk to the Honorable Martha L. Walters of the Oregon Supreme Court, and was an honors attorney at the Oregon Department of Justice.
“Todd and José are highly respected attorneys with impressive backgrounds and experience as skilled negotiators and litigators,” said Portland managing partner, Mitch Baker. “Their ties to the business and legal communities are instrumental as Fisher Phillips continues to enhance its services to clients in Portland and throughout the West Coast."
