The global firm Jones Day announces that Patricia (Trish) Dunn has been elected a Fellow of The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. The College's installation of Fellows was held November 9, 2019, in New Orleans.
Election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by a labor and employment lawyer's colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication, and excellence. The College is a prestigious national organization whose membership is limited to attorneys who demonstrate the highest professional qualifications and ethical standards based on the College's principles of civility and professionalism.
"Trish is nationally recognized as one of the top labor lawyers in the country, including as lead negotiator in collective bargaining agreements for some of the country's largest media and industrial employers. We congratulate her on her admission into the College," said Michael Gray, co-chair of Jones Day's global Labor & Employment Practice. "Her experience, judgment, and outstanding client service not only epitomize the standards represented by the College, but are also critical to clients in their vital labor and employment matters."
"With now 12 active Fellows in our practice, we are proud of Trish's accomplishments, and also the wide range of our capabilities around the world," noted Matthew Lampe, who co-chairs the Labor & Employment Practice. "The College's recognition confirms the outstanding contributions Trish has provided to clients throughout her distinguished career, and we are gratified by the College's recognition of her professionalism."
Ms. Dunn has been negotiating collective bargaining agreements for employers for more than 30 years. She also represents employers in proceedings before the NLRB, in litigation under Section 301 of the LMRA, and in labor arbitrations.
