ELA – Employment Law Alliance

The Employment Law Alliance (ELA) was founded in 2000 by Stephen Hirschfeld in San Francisco, and focuses on labour law. The alliance's motto is "hire one lawyer, get the expertise of two thousand." No fewer than 54 law firms in the USA and overseas have since become members of ELA. Each represents its local market as an expert in labour law. CERHA HEMPEL is represented in this network and is able to exchange knowledge, research results and experience with all of the law firms involved at a global level.
