Milwaukee, WI (June 15, 2015) – Michael Best Partner Scott C. Beightol has been named one of The Nation’s Top 100 Most Powerful Employment Attorneys of 2015, according to Human Resource Executive Magazine. Mr. Beightol is the only attorney on the list who is based in Wisconsin.
This is the fourth consecutive year in which Mr. Beightol has been included on this prestigious list. Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based networking site for lawyers and clients, prepared this list exclusively for Human Resource Executive Magazine through a process of online balloting along with a rigorous vetting of the submissions as well as editorial and peer review. Only those attorneys who earn glowing marks from clients, peers, colleagues and judges are awarded the distinction of the Most Powerful Employment Attorneys in the United States.
Mr. Beightol, a partner in the firm’s Labor and Employment Relations Practice Group, represents businesses in all aspects of employment and labor relations, with special emphasis in litigation of discrimination, non-compete and other matters in federal and state court, arbitration, and before the NLRB and OFCCP. He counsels clients on HR audits and best practices, complex termination and disability/FMLA matters, and union relation matters involving labor negotiations and arbitrations. Mr. Beightol represents a variety of industries, but is particularly experienced in manufacturing (including pulp and paper), health care, transportation and financial services.
