Laner Muchin Adds to Growing Firm Roster with Addition of Associates Jolianne S. Alexander and Amber N. Lukowicz
Laner Muchin is pleased to announce the addition of Jolianne S. Alexander and Amber N. Lukowicz to its growing team, continuing to provide clients with high-quality labor and employment legal services that the firm is known for.
“We are always thrilled to be able to add such capable attorneys to our team,” said Managing Partner Jim Convery. “Jolianne’s and Amber’s addition to the knowledge base of the firm further enhances our capabilities in our areas of focus, which is critical to the success we bring to our clients each day.”
Jolianne has extensive experience counseling clients on employee relations issues arising under the Illinois Human Rights Act and Title VII, as well as other employment-related statutes. She also has significant experience litigating claims at the administrative, trial, and appellate levels, and has argued before the Illinois Supreme Court on a novel issue pertaining to disability discrimination/"disability harassment" under Illinois law. Her dynamic perspective stems from her years of experience in practicing employment law as an in-house counsel, and as both a plaintiff’s and defense-side employment attorney.
Amber focuses her practice in employment and labor litigation and counseling, and comes from a Chicago trial firm in which she gained extensive experience in defending employers with respect to employee-related claims from the initial report through litigation or settlement of the matter. Amber also has experience performing discrimination and sexual harassment internal investigations and defending employers in OSHA investigations and NLRB charges. Amber utilizes her wide range of experience in insurance claims to assist employers in their day-to-day risk management, including drafting employment policies and training programs to maintain compliance with state and federal laws and handling sensitive terminations.
Laner Muchin, Ltd. concentrates in the representation of employers in labor relations, employment litigation, employee benefits and business immigration matters. The firm provides legal services to clients from coast to coast.
