Sunshine Fellows Interviewed in Law360 About Joining Lewis Brisbois’ Labor & Employment Practice
Pittsburgh, Pa. (June 22, 2020) - Partner Sunshine R. Fellows, who recently joined Lewis Brisbois’ Labor & Employment Practice in the firm’s Pittsburgh office, was interviewed by Law360 for an article describing how she plans to expand her practice and collaborate with her new colleagues. Ms. Fellows' move to Lewis Brisbois was announced in a firm press release on June 18.
For the past 15 years, Ms. Fellows has represented a diverse client base in a wide range of workplace matters, including wage and hour class actions, discrimination cases, and litigation involving breach of contract, fraud, and wrongful discharge claims. She told Law360 that the majority of her practice has involved working with insurance carriers that provide insurance to employers. In addition to handling litigation in federal and state courts, Ms. Fellows also has defended clients before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and other administrative agencies.
In discussing how she hopes to broaden her platform and strengthen the firm’s presence in the Pittsburgh area, she explained, “Lewis Brisbois having a national practice gave me the perfect opportunity to further develop that business.” She added, “And me coming onto the Pittsburgh office gives the firm the opportunity to service their clients in this region to the extent that they have workplace law issues.”
In commenting upon how her move to Lewis Brisbois will positively impact her practice and the firm, she said, “Having practiced largely on my own for the last six years, it’s a real benefit for me to now have a huge team of other employment law practitioners nationwide to collaborate with and draw on their expertise and offer my expertise to the group.”
Ms. Fellows also told Law360 that she “enjoy[s] working with employers.” She explained, “I enjoy helping them get through the stress of a lawsuit in a way that hopefully minimizes the stress for them, and minimizes the inevitable discomfort of litigation.”
Similarly, in noting that she enjoys employment law because it is an area of law to which everyone can relate, Ms. Fellows described, “Almost everyone is an employee or employer, and employees naturally are very invested in their professions and their livelihoods.” She added, “[E]mployers are naturally very invested in their business that they’ve worked so hard and toiled to build. It’s an area that’s not only very relatable to everyone but also important to everyone, I think, on a personal level.”
