Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP attorney Katherine M. Forster will speak at the 2014 Institute for Corporate Counsel on Dec. 3, 2014.
The annual institute run by the USC Gould School of Law will feature prominent speakers, including Edison International Chairman Ted Craver, Jr., California Solicitor General Edward Dumont and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, among others. The institute focuses on the intersection of law, business and politics to provide insight about the working environments of corporate clients to the counsel who represent them.
Ms. Forster will speak on a panel titled “Employers Beware: What’s Now, What’s New and What’s Next.” Panelists will discuss the state of labor and employment law in terms of recent case law and government initiatives, examine how employers can manage risk and minimize exposure, and address trends that may impact the future of employment and labor law.
Ms. Forster is a litigator who represents employers in a wide range of matters including class actions, wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment litigation, and appellate matters. In addition to her litigation practice, Ms. Forster advises employers on compliance with state and federal labor laws in connection with corporate restructurings, executive separations and day-to-day operations.
