Allison Hubbard Colgin
Employment Lawyer for California and Wyoming Businesses and Startups
"“As a patent specialist, I was a fish out of water in when a client turned to me to negotiate a resolution to an employment dispute. I turned to Allison Colgin for her specialized skills and considerable experience in employment law. My client, a senior executive at a world-famous organization, reached very favorable terms on severance pay and non-disparagement. Allison made it happen.” Andrew Dhuey Berkeley, Cal. May 2016"
Senior Corporate Counsel
Aug 1995 - Dec 1999
As the first employment lawyer for the company, I set up a system of controls to prevent wrongful terminations, drafted and refined employment policies, and created and presented management and sexual harassment training programs across the company. I reviewed all terminations, and I oversaw all layoffs. I investigated complaints of harassment or discrimination and managed all litigation.
