January 2021 Newsletter

Dear Valued Clients, Colleagues and Supporters: Happy New Year! We hope 2021 brings you great health, prosperity, and success. We are grateful to have made it through last year with your continued support and have a few exciting announcements of our own to share as we kick off the new year:

Our New Partner

We are proud to announce that our firm's long-time associate, Kyle Carraro, is now officially a partner. Kyle's professionalism and dedication to our practice have been invaluable over the years, and we are excited for him to bring even more value and direction as our firm continues to grow.

Our Team is Growing

We are also excited to announce that our firm has hired Shivam Patel as our newest associate. Shiv brings a unique background and experience with him and we are looking forward to the skills and knowledge he will bring to our team and clients.

Our firm has also added seasoned veteran attorney Alan Bennett, along with his long-time associate Carla Bautista, as of counsel to our practice. Alan and Carla bring an incredible amount of experience of their own, particularly in litigating complex commercial and employment disputes.

Finally, Christina Welch has joined our team as the firm’s new paralegal and will play a crucial role in the firm’s success in 2021. Christina has over 20 years of experience as a paralegal managing all aspects of real estate transactions and we are incredibly grateful for the knowledge and abilities she will bring to our team as the firm's new paralegal.

You can learn more about the rest our team here.  

Legal Updates

In addition to these exciting changes, as we do routinely, we have two new articles to share that are highly relevant to legal issues impacting businesses and employees alike.

One is an article on employers' ability to mandate the COVID-19 vaccination; the other is a general legal update on changes in he law that impact businesses and employees in 2021.  You can find all our previously archived articles here as well.  

We hope you find these articles useful and look forward to working with many of you in the year(s) to come!
