An experienced labor and employment lawyer, Ellen Shadur Gross represents private and public entities in traditional labor relations, collective bargaining, and unfair labor charges, primarily for clients in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, higher education, and local government. Ellen also handles employment litigation and counsels employees on employment matters. Ellen brings the insight of an in-house lawyer to her practice, having previously served as associate general counsel for a European manufacturer. This enables her to see situations from a client's perspective. She also has been trained and has practiced as a mediator, which gives her a unique ability to look beyond the immediate question at hand and see the longer-term strategic goals and interests at stake. Whether a workforce is union or non-union, or seeking to be represented by a union, Ellen finds reasoned, practical solutions to establish and maintain workplace stability and to support the employer’s business objectives.
Ellen is a regular contributor to BakerHostetler's Employment and Labor and Health Law Updates commenting on labor relations issues, and has published in the American Health Lawyers' Association Labor & Employment Newsletter.
