Seyfarth Shaw LLP issued the following announcement on Feb. 6.

Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of partner Richard Y. Chen to the Labor & Employment department in Los Angeles - Century City. Chen joins from Ogletree Deakins, where he was a shareholder in its Employment Law practice group in Orange County.

Chen’s practice focuses on a broad range of labor and employment matters, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful discharge disputes arising under Title VII and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.

Chen represents Fortune 1000 companies in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, retail, aerospace, transportation, hospital/healthcare, and corrections.

In addition to representing employers in high stakes litigation, Chen also counsels businesses on many daily employment issues, including investigations, employee discipline and terminations, and wage and hour compliance.

“As we enter a new era of challenging times for California employers, Richard is a fantastic addition to our West Coast labor and employment group,” said Laura Shelby, co-managing partner of Seyfarth’s Los Angeles - Century City office.

“Richard is regarded as a true professional in the local community and brings a dynamic work ethic to our Los Angeles office,” said Nicholas Waddles, co-managing partner of Seyfarth’s Los Angeles - Century City office.

Chen earned his J.D. from the Rutgers University School of Law, where he served as editor of the Rutgers Law Review. He received his B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
