The Daily Business Review recognized two of the firm’s attorneys for their achievements in the legal profession.
Chair of the firm’s Labor and Employment Division Brett J. Schneider was recognized as a 2021 Innovator. This award gives special recognition to WSHC+B’s Labor & Employment division for differentiating the practice group in a crowded market. When the U.S. became engulfed in the unprecedented public health crisis last spring, the firm’s labor attorneys sprang into action to become vital thought leaders for their clients, contacts and peers. They immediately recognized that COVID-19 would dramatically alter the nation’s employment landscape and became the go-to resource for all questions related to the pandemic.
Chanae L. Wood is recognized in the Diversity & Inclusion category for making significant contributions in Florida’s legal community. In less than a year, what started out as Chanae’s idea for an internal D&I program to foster in-depth conversations and inclusion education among the firm’s attorneys and staff blossomed into a much larger endeavor within the legal community.
Brett and Chanae will be honored at the publication’s Florida Legal Awards event on May 19.
