Target Corporation Honors Nilan Johnson Lewis with Outstanding Law Firm Award
At an October 25 reception, Target Corporation recognized Nilan Johnson Lewis (NJL) and its labor and employment practice group with the Outstanding Law Firm Award, a first-ever accolade given by the Fortune 500 retailer. Chosen from a host of distinguished outside legal counsel teams who work with Target’s Labor and Employee Relations Team, NJL received high marks for delivering bottom line results, collaborating with Target and its other outside counsel, and understanding Target’s business, all while maintaining “lean and mean” billing practices.
“It’s a great honor any time you win an award for your work, and even more so when the award comes directly from a client. To be honored in this way by an employer as influential and well-managed as Target means a tremendous amount,” said NJL Labor and Employment Practice Group Chair, Joe Schmitt, who has represented Target for more than 10 years.
Having represented hundreds of corporate clients, NJL’s labor and employment team defends employment matters on a nationwide basis, and has deep expertise in class action and other complex cases. The team also provides comprehensive counseling and advice regarding traditional labor and employment matters. For a complete listing of the group’s capabilities, please click here.
