NEW YORK, NY (July 13, 2018) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce Lori D. Bauer has been appointed Managing Principal of the New York City office. Ms. Bauer succeeds Kevin G. Lauri, who stepped down to focus on his upcoming tenure as Co-Chair of the firm alongside William J. Anthony, effective January 1, 2019.  

“I would like to congratulate Lori on this well-deserved appointment,” said Firm Chairman Vincent A. Cino. “Since she joined the firm in 1988, she has displayed strong leadership qualities and contributed an invaluable amount of enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to the firm. I am confident that our New York City office will continue to do great things under her watch.”

Her litigation practice includes, but is not limited to, claims of discrimination, sexual harassment, breach of contract, retaliation, and violation of whistle-blower protections, and wage and hour laws. In her counseling practice, Ms. Bauer regularly advises employers on issues such as best practice employment policies, disability management, reductions in force, privacy in the workplace, terminations, restrictive covenants, executive hiring and separations and performance management. 

“I am honored to follow in Kevin’s footsteps,” said Ms. Bauer. “It is a privilege to lead the office forward on a path of continued growth and success, and I look forward to continuing to work with our team of talented attorneys as we continue to provide exceptional service to our clients.”
