WHITE PLAINS, NY (March 22, 2018) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, hosted its 2018 Corporate Counsel Conference on March 14 - 16 at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Miami. The conference focused on significant developments and trends in employment law, including sexual harassment in the workplace. This year’s featured speakers included news commentator Ana Navarro of CNN, ABC News and Telemundo, and political reporter Robert Costa of The Washington Post, NBC News and “Washington Week”.

This year’s conference addressed several hot topics in workplace law including data security, “whistleblower” retaliation claims, severance agreements and sexual harassment in the workplace. The conference featured remarks by Ana Navarro and Robert Costa on the current political climate and its impact on workplace law.

In his opening remarks, Jackson Lewis Chairman Vincent A. Cino announced the firm had launched a new partnership with ROSS Intelligence to help attorneys with the legal research process. “Our relationship with ROSS Intelligence not only allows us to continue to provide excellent client service in the ever-changing business of law, but also ensures that as a firm, we are fully leveraging the transformative artificial intelligence technology that is rapidly changing the knowledge economy,” said Cino. “Jackson Lewis attorneys will be empowered to work more efficiently and effectively, enabling them to continue to provide proactive and insightful guidance in their role as trusted advisors and counsel to our clients."

The firm will be deploying the ROSS Intelligence AI legal research solution firm-wide in 2018, as part of its ongoing commitment to legal technology innovation and client service.
