Three LCW Partners have been selected to the list of "Top Labor & Employment Lawyers" by the Daily Journal: Steven M. Berliner, Peter J. Brown and Laura Kalty.

Steven M. Berliner, Chair of the LCW Retirement Practice Group, has been named to this list for the second consecutive time for his unparalleled retirement law and labor negotiations expertise. Steve acts as chief negotiator for many public agencies in labor negotiations with their employee groups, helping them reduce payroll and other costs. He also advises clients on contract interpretation issues, represents clients in grievance matters, and is frequently called on to assist agencies in times of fiscal crisis.


This is the third consecutive time that Peter J. Brown, Chair of the LCW Labor Relations and Negotiations Practice Group, has been selected to the list. Peter has been involved in all areas of Liebert Cassidy Whitmore's practice since 1989, representing public agencies in litigation, collective bargaining negotiations and many different types of administrative hearings. He has a unique talent in promptly developing an expertise in most of the laws which impact our public agency clients.


Laura Kalty, Chair of the LCW Wage and Hour Practice Group, has been selected to this list for the first time. Laura provides a full range of legal services, beginning with a focus on prevention and education through training, continuing with daily advice and counsel, and when necessary, vigorous defense in litigation and discipline appeals. Laura has a demonstrated record of success in handling all facets of litigation. She is also a dynamic trainer, who draws on her legal expertise and commitment to her clients' success as one of the firm's top presenters.

Liebert Cassidy Whitmore congratulates them for being honored in their work!
