The American Employment Law Council was founded in 1993 by leading labor and employment lawyers representing employers in the Unites States. It serves as a meeting ground for lawyers committed to professional excellence in the resourceful and principled representation of American employers. Membership is open to experienced and accomplished lawyers whose practice principally involves the representation of an employer or employers at a significant level of responsibility. As a non-profit organization, the Council is dedicated to education and does no lobbying, but will further its founders’ commitment to enlightened and fair-minded practices, to full participation in the workplace of qualified men and women from every quarter, and to the competitive success of employers in national and international markets. The Council provides an annual forum for candid and careful thinking about hard questions that good lawyering requires. It seeks to encourage and promote the highest standards of professional competence and responsibility in the field of labor and employment law.

Career History
Partner
1999 - Current

Parker Poe traces its roots back to 1884, when it was founded by Heriot Clarkson, later a Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. By 1990, the Firm (then known as Parker, Poe, Thompson, Bernstein, Gage & Preston) had grown to more than 65 lawyers, and had one of North Carolina's most sophisticated general corporate and business practices, as well as strong practices in the areas of litigation, the environment, tax law, real estate and lending. In 1990, the Firm merged with the 30-lawyer Raleigh firm of Adams, McCullough and Beard, which was founded in 1965 by Governor Terry Sanford and several other attorneys and which was recognized for its litigation, legislative and public finance practices. In 1992, Parker Poe established an office in Spartanburg, South Carolina to serve existing business clients and to take advantage of the fast-growing upstate South Carolina business region. In 1996, the Firm also opened an office in Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, where it now conducts a general business and governmental relations practice. Parker Poe opened its third South Carolina office, in historic Charleston, in January 2004, which has more than doubled in size since its opening.
