Leonora M. Schloss Named a Legal Visionary by Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 7, 2023) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce that Leonora “Lenny” M. Schloss has been named a 2023 Legal Visionary honoree by the Los Angeles Times. The honorees were selected based on exhibiting noteworthy achievements within their respective practice areas, for their successes and accomplishments achieved in the past 24 months, and for innovative strategies to help organizations and clients avoid risk and leverage opportunities.

“Since joining the firm 13 years ago, Lenny has earned a reputation as a strategic attorney and client advocate,” said Los Angeles Office Managing Principal Nicky Jatana. “She is an excellent example of the caliber of attorneys we have at Jackson Lewis, and we look forward to Lenny’s continued contributions to the firm. We congratulate her on this well-deserved honor.”

Lenny is a principal in the firm’s Los Angeles office and has more than 30 years of experience as a labor and employment attorney. She provides employers with effective legal advice and business-oriented solutions to help them achieve their objectives in a cost-effective manner.

As co-leader of the firm’s California Wage and Hour Internal Audit Subgroup, Lenny has defended hundreds of wage and hour class action cases, many resulting in complete dismissals. She has also litigated cases involving claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and wage/hour cases in state and federal courts.

One of Lenny's more notable successes is her involvement in a representative class action case that shaped California employment law. By taking the case to trial and securing a dismissal of the representative class, Lenny helped define minimum wage calculation under California law for the first time and set it apart from federal law.

Lenny is a frequent speaker on employment law issues and offers valuable guidance on preventive measures, drafting policies and substantive employment law topics.

“I am extremely grateful and humbled to have been recognized by the Los Angeles Times,” said Lenny. "It is a privilege to be chosen by local and national business leaders to litigate and try their most contentious legal matters. I look forward to continuing to serve as a trusted resource for my clients in the Los Angeles region and beyond.”

Lenny earned her J.D. from Columbia University Law School and her A.B. from St. Louis University.
