Thompson Coburn is delighted to announce that Howard Lavin joined the firm today as a partner in the New York office, setting the stage for continued national expansion.
“We have been courting Howard for some time and are excited to welcome him to our team,” Firm Chair Roman Wuller said. “Howard is the keystone for expanding our labor and employment services on the East Coast in response to client requests to grow those capabilities, particularly in New York City.”
Howard counsels clients on a broad range of local, state and federal employment laws and related issues, including discrimination, harassment, wage-and-hour, and M&A due diligence. He conducts internal investigations, workplace training, and compliance audits.
“Just as we were confident in the cultural fit with our Hahn & Hessen-Thompson Coburn merger, we know Howard– who we have gotten to know personally and professionally over several months – will be a terrific fit with the firm and our clients,” NY Office Managing Partner Mark Indelicato said.
Among clients Howard is pleased to welcome to the firm are Monarch Alternative Capital LP, Highline Management Inc., Financial Decisions, the New York Jockey Injury Compensation Fund, Axpo U.S. LLC, and the New York Compensation Insurance Rating Board. Howard joins the firm from Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP.
“It is a privilege to join Thompson Coburn during such an exciting period of growth in New York,” Howard said. “I look forward to collaborating with our colleagues both in the office and across the country to serve my clients through the firm’s full-service offerings, and to expand and support labor and employment services for the firm’s clients.”
Thompson Coburn’s New York office was established in 2021 through its combination with Hahn & Hessen. The primary service offerings in New York now include commercial finance, complex litigation, transactions, bankruptcy, real estate and labor and employment.
