John Alan Doran Joins Sherman & Howard
July 1, 2011 (PHOENIX) - Sherman & Howard announces that John Alan Doran, formerly a partner with Greenberg Traurig, has joined the Firm as a member of the Phoenix office. Mr. Doran joins the Firm's Labor & Employment practice. He brings to Sherman & Howard more than 20 years of experience representing clients primarily in the areas of labor and employment, appellate and litigation.
"We look forward to practicing with John Doran," says Sherman & Howard attorney Bob Deeny. "John has been a friend and professional colleague for years, and has established himself as one of the foremost labor and employment and appellate lawyers in the nation." Mr. Deeny welcomes Mr. Doran as a member of Sherman & Howard's premier, management-side labor and employment practice, based both in Arizona and Colorado. "We know our clients will receive the best possible representation."
"I'm extremely excited to join Sherman & Howard and its extraordinary group of lawyers," Mr. Doran explains. "The firm provides me with the depth necessary to continue my national, big-case practice, along with the agility to handle much smaller matters in Arizona and the Southwest. The Labor and Employment Group is outstanding from stem to stern, and I will have an opportunity to work with such Arizona labor and employment luminaries as Bob Deeny and Tom Kennedy. The firm's size will allow me to be more nimble in addressing client needs, while affording my clients the full-service capabilities that are brought to bear in virtually all labor and employment matters these days."
Mr. Doran's labor & employment practice covers a broad range of services ranging from client counseling and prevention strategies, to litigation, to appeals. He has represented clients in mass employment and wage/hour class and collective action litigation; employment discrimination and wrongful termination litigation; ERISA litigation; non-competition, trade secret, and unfair competition litigation; arbitration; traditional labor law and union avoidance; OSHA compliance and defense; and many other issues.
As an appellate lawyer, Mr. Doran has argued multiple cases to the Arizona Supreme Court and the Arizona Court of Appeals, as well as dozens of cases in the federal appellate system. In the area of litigation, he has represented clients on a wide range of subjects, from commercial lease disputes to political asylum, civil rights deprivation, commercial contracts and personal injury matters.
Chambers USA gives Mr. Doran its highest rating in labor and employment law. He is also recognized by Best Lawyers and has been included among the "Best of the Bar" in Arizona. He is nationally recognized as a lecturer in labor and employment and a regular instructor for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy.
