"Emily is an excellent and true partner who delivered consistently, supporting an exceptionally complex business model. Emily was always available, had great input and advice, and always asked the tough questions that needed to be asked. Her assistance with a comprehensive organization assessment was vital in completing that work, and her ability to present the data to our executives so that they understood the risk profile was impressive. She also regularly partnered with my HR team and ensured any unfamiliarity with an issue never put our business at unnecessary risk. I'm very glad she had both the keen wit and experience along with a willingness to step in to help us. Emily is a top performing employment lawyer and trusted advisor to HR, and I enjoyed working with her very much -- she would be an asset to any organization in need of her employment law expertise."
