BOSTON, June 10, 2024Bronwyn L. Roberts has re-joined Duane Morris LLP as a partner in the firm’s Employment, Labor, Benefits and Immigration Practice Group in its Boston office. Prior to joining Duane Morris, Roberts led the Boston employment group at Cooley LLP. Before her time at Cooley, Roberts was both a partner and an associate at Duane Morris for 18 years.

“We are pleased to welcome Bronwyn back to Duane Morris, and she is a terrific addition to our expansive and very busy employment practice,” said Duane Morris Chairman and CEO Matthew A. Taylor. “It is always significant when a talented attorney returns to our firm, which serves as an important recognition that our collegial and collaborative culture is attractive, unique and beneficial to attorneys looking to expand their careers.”

“We are seeing strong momentum in our practice group, with an uptick in investigations, employment litigation and class action activities,” said Eve I. Klein, chair of Duane Morris’ Employment, Labor, Benefits and Immigration Practice Group. “Our clients are seeking out Duane Morris for their complex workplace and employee matters, and Bronwyn’s experience in high technology and life sciences businesses will immediately be utilized.”

“Our clients in the region will certainly benefit from Bronwyn’s experience, and she will be a great resource for her firm colleagues here in Boston,” said Michael R. Gottfried, managing partner of the firm’s Boston office.

Roberts handles commercial and employment law matters for clients ranging from early stage startups to Fortune 100 companies. She has a broad-based practice in the area of employment, helping clients to minimize risk and resolve disputes through practical employment solutions and, when necessary, litigation. Roberts, admitted in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, has conducted numerous high-profile, sensitive investigations of employee misconduct and disloyalty and she has helped guide employers through difficult resolutions. She represents technology and life sciences businesses in employment litigation matters, including the defense of employment discrimination cases, restrictive covenant litigation, wrongful discharge cases, wage-and-hour claims, employment contract matters and trade secret and noncompetition cases. Roberts is a first chair trial lawyer with extensive courtroom experience and she regularly appears before state and federal courts, as well as the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, for which she is an advisory board member, advising the governor and the commission on policy matters. She counsels businesses on employment matters, including the preparation of human resource policies, hiring and recruiting, wage-and-hour compliance, worker classification, mobility issues, whistleblower allegations, discrimination, harassment and reductions in force. Roberts regularly conducts, directs and advises on workplace investigations. She also provides corporate training on various employment issues.

“With businesses struggling more than ever with the uptick in new regulations that impact the way they manage their employees, I am excited to once again be part of Duane Morris and look forward to using the firm’s deep platform to broaden and serve clients in forward looking, innovative ways. It is a wonderful homecoming for me,” said Roberts.

Roberts is a graduate of Suffolk University Law School (J.D., cum laude, 1997) and Tufts University (B.S., 1993).
