Polsinelli LLP has hired a pair of prominent former Seyfarth Shaw LLP employment attorneys, who bring wide-ranging expertise in labor law, to join its growing San Francisco office as shareholders.

Shareholders Charles Thompson and Michele Haydel Gehrke have joined Polsinelli in its year-old San Francisco office, where they will bring to bear years of expertise relating to employment law. Thompson joins the firm as vice chair of its California labor and employment practice group and as leader of its west coast labor and employment practice, according to the firm. Polsinelli’s national labor and employment practice now has more than 50 attorneys thanks to the duo, the firm said in its announcement of their hiring.

“Chuck is a great well-rounded labor and employment lawyer who brings valuable experience advising and representing clients in California,” Nancy Rafuse, chair of Polsinelli’s labor and employment practice group said in a statement. “Both he and Michele are highly respected attorneys in the San Francisco-area representing top-tier companies and we are excited to have them on our team and expanding our labor and employment practice in California.”
