Holland & Hart is proud to announce that partner Steven Gutierrez and of counsel Steven Suflas have been named to the 17th edition of the Lawdragon 500 Leading Corporate Employment Lawyers guide. Gutierrez was recognized for Labor & Employment and Suflas was recognized for Labor & Employment, esp. Litigation.
This Lawdragon 500 practice guide honors attorneys who specialize in employment litigation, defending trade secret, discrimination, ERISA, wage and hour, and other claims. Also included are immigration and employee benefits and executive compensation attorneys, according to Lawdragon. Selections are based on independent journalistic research, submissions, and vetting.
Gutierrez advises employers how to attract, incentivize, and retain talent and helps his clients effectively handle the varied challenges of the modern employment relationship. He helps companies protect trade-secrets, enforce restrictive covenants, and meet with Unions to navigate the complex environment of traditional labor. Steve's extensive experience providing strategic and tactical counsel in pre-litigation negotiations and resolutions; at hearings for and against emergency injunctive relief; at mediations; and before other administrative bodies, including the NLRB, EEOC, and Colorado Civil Rights Division has saved his clients substantially.
Leveraging more than four decades of national experience, Suflas provides strategic counsel and pragmatic guidance to help employers respond to employment and labor law issues. An experienced litigator, Steve understands the tactical positioning required to advance an employer’s rights, whether defending them in individual or class actions and appeals in state or federal court; before administrative agencies, including the NLRB, EEOC, and Utah Labor Commission; or in arbitration and mediation. In 2019, he was selected for inclusion in Lawdragon’s “Leading Lawyers in America” Hall of Fame.
