Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP has announced sizeable expansions of its labor, employment and employee benefits practice in Chicago and San Francisco.
In Chicago, where Morgan Lewis established its first Midwest office less than one year ago, highly-rated attorneys Nina G. Stillman and Barry A. Hartstein have joined Morgan Lewis' new Chicago-based labor, employment and employee benefits practice. Ms. Stillman and Mr. Hartstein bring with them decades of experience representing and counseling top-tier clients on significant employment and human resource issues and litigation.

Ward Kallstrom and Nicole Diller join Morgan Lewis' San Francisco-based labor, employment and employee benefits practice. Mr. Kallstrom and Ms. Diller bring to this practice market-leading expertise in employee benefits, including fiduciary counseling and litigation on behalf of employers, pension and welfare benefit plans and plan administrators.
"We're very pleased that these outstanding legal veterans have decided to join Morgan Lewis," said the firm's chair, Francis M. Milone. "Our labor, employment and employee benefits practice has long been recognized as a national leader in rank and scope. With the addition of outstanding talent from key national firms in Chicago and San Francisco, we are able to integrate these individuals' legal experience and market expertise into what has become a 'practice without borders,' addressing the full spectrum of labor, employment and employee benefits challenges faced by our clients."
