Firm Gets Employment Law Designation for Northern Nevada

Press Release

RENO – Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP, one of the largest law firms in the Western U.S., is now the exclusive Northern Nevada member of the Employment Law Alliance, the world's leading network of labor, employment and immigration lawyers.

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie’s labor and employment lawyers represent employers in employment litigation and arbitration, administrative proceedings, collective bargaining and as counsel across the full range of the human resources spectrum. 

David McElhinney of the firm’s Reno office will lead the employment law services offered to Northern Nevada-area businesses. 

“As the exclusive Northern Nevada representative, our relationship with ELA means that clients across a variety of industries have access to a local law firm with truly global reach but at a fraction of the price of most large national firms,” said McElhinney.

McElhinney is a partner in the firm’s Litigation and Labor and Employment practices. With more than three decades of legal experience, he works with employers helping them anticipate, avoid and resolve human resource workplace issues. He also has been first chair legal counsel in 50 jury trials to verdict in Nevada, California and Colorado and countless bench trials, arbitrations and mediations. He is licensed in both Nevada and California.

“David offers clients an experienced perspective and is able to help them decide the appropriate path to take to reach their business goals. He also advises clients on how to put legal measures in place now in order to avoid or minimize adverse risk or exposure in the future. He is an excellent choice to represent the ELA in Northern Nevada,” said Mary Ellen Simonson, leader of the firm’s Labor and Employment practice and member of the ELA Board of Directors. 

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie is the exclusive ELA-affiliated law firm for the entire state of Nevada. The firm’s Las Vegas office serves Southern Nevada clients.

The Employment Law Alliance is the world's leading network of labor, employment and immigration lawyers. ELA lawyers are evaluated on client service and value, with alliance members able to support local, national and international businesses.
