Law360 Features 2021 Employment MVP Erin Connell


Law360 featured partner Erin Connell as a 2021 MVP in employment, highlighting her precedent-setting win for Oracle last year in a pay equity case brought by the U.S. Department of Labor.

In an interview with the publication, Erin discussed her practice, her focus on workplace issues such as pay equity and the unique challenges for clients during the pandemic. "It's challenging. But it's also what I love about it because it's exciting, and it allows you to be creative, and it allows you to use your judgment and draw analogies," Erin said of pandemic-era problem-solving. "We're practicing in this space where we are literally making law."

Erin also provided advice to young lawyers. "As lawyers, we work hard, and it can be stressful, but it can also be fun and exciting and rewarding," she said. "So I would say try to find an area of the law that really inspires you and motivates you, and it makes it really worthwhile."
