Elise M. Bloom is widely hailed as one of the nation’s top employment lawyers and one of the most creative and effective wage and hour, class/collective action and trial lawyers. She is particularly well-known for handling high profile, bet-the-company matters on behalf of significant national employers.
Elise is the co-chair of the Firm’s Labor & Employment Department, co-head of the Class & Collective Actions Group and former member of Proskauer’s Executive Committee.
With 30+ years in practice, Elise possesses extensive pre-trial and jury trial experience. She has represented more companies in class actions challenging interns, trainees and volunteers than most others; this includes her precedent-setting win for Fox Searchlight Pictures in the “Black Swan” case. She also addresses a wider range of general employment issues through counseling and employer training programs.
