Michael Best Snags New Labor Senior Counsel in Chicago


Michael Best & Friedrich LLP has added a new senior counsel from LaPointe Law PC to its labor and employment relations practice in Chicago.

S. Leigh Jeter joins the firm with experience representing both public and private sector clients on matters such as harassment and discrimination, and defending them before government agencies including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the firm said Tuesday.

"I've known of Michael Best for years and have known some of their labor and employment attorneys for a long time, and what I've witnessed is that they just have a really strong and innovative approach to helping clients be successful and to make better business decisions," Jeter told Law360 on Wednesday.

Before LaPointe Law, Jeter was at Clark Baird Smith LLP and Seyfarth Shaw LLP for nearly 20 years and founded and ran her own law office. She has represented clients ranging from businesses in the restaurant, manufacturing and health care industries, and from Fortune 100 companies to local municipalities, especially facing claims from the EEOC.
