The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers recently announced that Sean Gallagher of the Denver office of Polsinelli has been elected as a Fellow. This designation is the highest peer recognition of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication and excellence.

The nineteenth installation of Fellows will be held Nov. 8, 2014, in Los Angeles, coinciding with the American Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section's Continuing Legal Education Conference. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than 1,300 members in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight provinces from Canada.

“We are extremely proud of Sean for achieving this national recognition from his colleagues,” said W. Terrence Kilroy, Jr., chair of Polsinelli’s Labor and Employment Practice. “His election as a Fellow is a testament to the legal counsel and hard work that Sean displays every day for our firm and our clients.”

As a member of Polsinelli’s Labor and Employment practice, Gallagher has spent more than 25 years assisting employers in implementing proactive employment policies that help minimize the risk of litigation. In 2012, Gallagher became one of only a handful of lawyers in Colorado history to have argued a case in the Supreme Court of the United States and prevailed with a unanimous decision.

The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It operates as a freestanding organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field of labor and employment law.

Polsinelli continues to grow as a leader in labor and employment law, with more than 50 full-time labor and employment attorneys who understand the complexity and sensitivity of employee relations and workplace issues. Polsinelli offers clients extensive experience providing employers with cost-efficient advice and aggressive defenses on employment and labor law matters.

Gallagher speaks and writes frequently in his area of law and is an excellent source for reporters.
