Goldberg Segalla Continues Growth of Employment Practice With Addition of Dove A. E. Burns October 16, 2014

Goldberg Segalla is pleased to announce Dove A. E. Burns has joined the law firm’s Employment and Labor and Professional Liability Practice Groups as a partner in its New York office. The addition of Dove and her nationally recognized experience in employment practices liability (EPL) litigation and counseling further expands the capabilities of Goldberg Segalla’s growing team that serves the needs of employers and executives across the country.

Dove defends corporate clients and executives, multibillion-dollar international restaurant chains, hospitals, municipalities, housing authorities, nonprofits, and boards of directors in high-exposure employment law and professional liability matters. She has tried numerous cases to verdict and has resolved disputes through arbitration, mediation, and conciliation. Dove also leverages that experience to provide proactive counsel that helps employers minimize the risk of litigation.

She has developed a particular focus on litigation involving non-compete agreements, through which she helps clients enforce their rights and prevent the leakage of proprietary and trade information, as well as defending company executives against claims of sexual misconduct, racial harassment, corporate malfeasance, and other allegations of wrongdoing.

Dove is a frequent speaker and writer to national audiences on a wide range of employment law topics. She is a prominent member of the national Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS), where she serves as a member of the Hartford Chapter’s Steering Committee and Co-Chair of its Educational Committee. She is a member of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) as well as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

Her arrival closely follows Goldberg Segalla’s addition in September of partner Madeline S. Baio and associate Jennifer M. Mannion in Philadelphia, which brought extensive experience defending and counseling clients from a broad range of industries, including Fortune 100 companies, with regard to discrimination and harassment claims, civil rights claims, wage disputes, and other employment-related matters. Madeline is Chair of the National Retail and Restaurant Defense Association’s Employment Practices Committee.
