Daily Journal Names King & Spalding Partner Cheryl Sabnis a Top California Labor and Employment Lawyer

SAN FRANCISCO, July 15, 2020 — The Daily Journal has named King & Spalding employment partner Cheryl Sabnis to its 2020 list of Top Labor and Employment Lawyers in California.

Sabnis focuses her practice on complex litigation in U.S. federal and state courts and arbitration, and defends clients facing putative class actions, collective actions, multi-district and coordinated proceedings. She helps her clients manage employee-related crises and conducts privileged investigations concerning allegations of employee, officer, and contractor misconduct, and regularly counsels and provides training to clients regarding a broad range of employment-related matters.

In a profile published today, the Daily Journal noted that Sabnis handles “high-profile, high value employment litigation” matters and has “become a sought-after voice on the #MeToo movement.” The publication cited her as being an authority on Covid-related labor and employment issues in the California region. The Journal also highlighted Sabnis’s role in defending retailer Hat World Inc., operator of Lids stores, in an enforcement action brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over the firing of a Lids store manager for complaining about sexual harassment, which led to the company signing a consent decree and both sides reaching a settlement.
