The governors of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers have elected Chuck Poplstein a Fellow of the College. The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the ABA's Section of Labor and Employment Law. It operates as a freestanding organization, recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
Membership in this national organization is by invitation only and limited to attorneys who have provided “sustained, exceptionally high-quality services to clients, bar, bench and public.” According to the organization, “election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession.” Fewer than 35 attorneys in Missouri share the honor.
Chuck is the co-chair of Thompson Coburn’s Labor and Employment practice. He has more than 30 years of experience in a broad range of labor and employment issues. Chuck will be inducted into the Class of 2011 in a formal ceremony on November 3 during the American Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section's Continuing Legal Education Conference in Atlanta.
