ATLANTA – June 19, 2017 – Ogletree Deakins, one of the largest labor and employment law firms representing management, is pleased to announce that Kim Ebert, Joe Clees, and Paul Lancaster Adams have been named to Human Resource Executive magazine’s 2017 list of the “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys.” Ebert is named to the list for a fifth consecutive time, while Clees makes the list for the ninth consecutive time. This is Adams’s first appearance on the prestigious list.

Human Resource Executive magazine’s “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” guide, which is produced in partnership with Lawdragon, recognizes employment lawyers who stand out for their ability to guide employers through constantly-evolving workplace laws. The list is intended to offer corporate counsel and human resource professionals an unsurpassed guide to the lawyers who can help them resolve difficult employment situations and keep them in compliance with increasingly complicated and changing workplace-related regulations. Lawdragon selected the 100 leading corporate-side employment lawyers based on online balloting and submissions with rigorous vetting, as well as editorial and peer review. To make the list, a lawyer typically has practiced for more than 20 years and amassed a list of remarkable accomplishments, including defending and advising companies in the day’s most critical matters and advising them on hiring and retaining the best employees from around the world. A recognized attorney typically has also generally chaired his or her firm’s employment department, been selected to lead his or her state or national employment-bar organization, and received glowing recommendations from corporate counsel who have benefited from their services and would hire them again.
