June 30, 2014

Firm partner Brian Clemow has been named one of the Top 20 Attorneys in Traditional Labor & Employment in 2014 by Lawdragon and Human Resource Executive. This is the fourth consecutive year that he has been recognized as a leading employment attorney in the U.S. by Lawdragon’s Guide to World Class Employment Lawyers. Mr. Clemow is the only Connecticut attorney to receive this distinction, which is based on scope of experience as well as outstanding evaluations by clients and peers.

While representing public and private employers in labor relations and employment law matters for more than 40 years, Mr. Clemow has handled a variety of notable cases. For example, he represented the West Hartford Board of Education in the landmark case that established the parameters for teacher collective bargaining in Connecticut, and negotiated a management contract with a for-profit education company on behalf of the Hartford Board of Education, which was the first municipality in the nation to hire a company to help manage its entire public school district. Mr. Clemow also counsels CEOs and other senior executives regarding employment contracts and other employment-related agreements.

Mr. Clemow is a former Chair of the Connecticut Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law section, and is a frequent speaker on employment-related topics before business and professional groups. He has taught various courses in labor relations and employment law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. He is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
