Devora L. Lindeman is a Partner with Greenwald Doherty LLP, a labor and employment law firm exclusively representing management in relationships with employees and unions, with offices in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. She provides management training to employers and employer associations on these and other topics. Lindeman joined Greenwald Doherty in 2007 with many years experience in management-side labor and employment law. Previously an attorney at Proskauer Rose, LLP, she divided her practice between human resources consultation and court and agency litigation. Lindeman spent a number of years at a labor and employment boutique firm prior to that. Since she has a business background, she understands employers’ needs and works with them to creatively solve employee issues. Much of her practice involves counseling clients on issues that arise daily, such as responding to workplace discrimination or harassment complaints, dealing with wage and hour compliance issues, accommodating individuals with disabilities, dealing with leave laws such as the Family and Medical Leave Act and routinely addressing the other myriad of situations that arise on a daily basis when one has employees. She also reviews and drafts employee policies and handbooks and assists employers with employee agreements, such as non-compete and confidentiality agreements, as well as those involved with reductions in force. Lindeman lectures to trade and business associations on various employment law topics.
Lindeman received her undergraduate degree from Sarah Lawrence College and graduated from Rutgers School of Law—Newark with Highest Honors. During law school, she served as the Notes & Comments Editor for the Rutgers Law Review. On graduation, she was inducted into both the Order of the Coif and the Order of the Barrister. She then clerked for the Honorable Stanley R. Chesler, U.S.M.J., in the District of New Jersey. Lindeman has practiced management-side labor and employment law ever since. She is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey.
