BOSTON, MA (May 17, 2021) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce Patrice C. Dixon has been selected as an “Up & Coming Lawyer” by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s Excellence in the Law Awards. The “Up & Coming Lawyers” category recognizes the rising stars of the Massachusetts legal community who have been members of the bar for 10 years or less, yet have already distinguished themselves in the practice of law. 

“I am honored to be recognized as an ‘Up & Coming Lawyer,’” said Patrice. “Since the beginning of my legal career, I was lucky enough to have tremendous support from my colleagues and peers. My experiences as a legal practitioner and as a member of the Boston community, have collectively reinforced my desire to elevate my career, develop as a leader, and give back locally, which I believe embodies the qualities of a rising star in the legal profession.”

Patrice is an Associate in the Boston office of Jackson Lewis where she focuses her practice on labor and employment law, including preventive advice and counseling. She represents employers in matters involving collective bargaining, contract administration, representation matters, and unfair labor practice charges. Beyond traditional labor matters, Patrice advises employers in numerous aspects of employment law, including discipline and termination, discrimination, harassment and retaliation issues, and leave management. She also has experience assisting management with internal investigations and trainings.  Patrice has handled administrative proceedings before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. 

Before joining Jackson Lewis, Patrice worked as a labor and employment attorney in the public sector for more than five years where she counseled human resources, labor relations, and other division senior leaders on a variety of state and federal labor and employment laws. During this time, she first chaired and managed complex arbitrations with outside counsel, and handled administrative proceedings before the MCAD, the Department of Labor Relations, and the Department of Unemployment. 

Patrice is a thought leader who regularly presents on panels. In addition, she plays an active role organizing and co-chairing events across various organizations in the legal community including the Boston Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Black Women Attorneys.
