Daily Journal Again Names Two Arnold & Porter Partners to its 'Top Labor and Employment Lawyers' List
San Francisco, CA, August 4, 2014 -- Arnold & Porter LLP San Francisco partners Dipanwita Deb Amar and David Reis were recently named to the Daily Journal's 2014 list of the "Top 75 Labor and Employment Lawyers" in California.
Ms. Amar, who was previously named to the list in 2012 and 2013, was recognized this year for her work in arbitrating disputes. This included her representation of a technology client in a disability discrimination case before the California Court. Ms. Amar convinced the court to enforce the arbitration clause in the parties’ employment contract, citing a landmark ruling — the 2011 U.S. Supreme Court's opinion in AT&T v. Concepcion, which affirmed the importance of honoring such supported arbitration provisions. The plaintiff then dismissed the case.
The Daily Journal recognized Mr. Reis, head of Arnold & Porter's Labor & Employment practice group, as a top employment lawyer for the fourth time (he was also named to the list in 2010, 2011, and 2013). Mr. Reis is an experienced trial lawyer who was recognized this year for his defense work in a prominent wage and hour class action and a related Department of Labor investigation.
