Polsinelli Shughart welcomes Marc D. Goldstein as associate to the Trial department where he will focus his practice in labor and employment law. Goldstein will assist clients with civil litigation; investigations and responses to charges of employment discrimination on behalf of employers; and counsel companies about various labor and employment issues. His addition is part of the firm’s strategic plan in expanding the St. Louis office as well as other offices across the nation.

“We are always committed to the recruitment and development of driven young attorneys,” said St. Louis Managing Director Randy S. Gerber. “Marc is a fine addition to our labor and employment group especially as we expand our firm’s presence in the St. Louis area.”

Goldstein joins a national Labor and Employment practice group consisting of nearly 25 attorneys in Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield and Phoenix. The attorneys represent Fortune 500 corporations and privately owned entrepreneurial firms throughout the United States and internationally.

“I’m excited to be part of a highly regarded team of attorneys whose background and knowledge will aid me in developing as an attorney” Goldstein said. “Working for a national law firm allows me to use their vast resources to build my practice while providing real value to my clients.”

Goldstein’s addition comes during an exciting period of growth for Polsinelli Shughart. In 2011, the firm opened Dallas and Los Angeles offices, and added more than 39 attorneys nationwide to help meet clients’ needs. The National Law Journal ranked Polsinelli Shughart, “the third fastest growing law firm in the country.”

Goldstein earned his law degree from Washington University School of Law-St. Louis in 2010 and his B.A. in Psychology and History from New York University in 2007. Before practicing law, Goldstein worked in Washington, D.C. with a non-governmental organization representing the commercial casino industry. Prior to joining Polsinelli Shughart, Goldstein previously practiced at a large St. Louis law firm for 14 months. When asked about returning and practicing near his hometown Goldstein said, “I always wanted to practice law in order to help people, especially those close to home.”
