We are pleased to announce that Stuart Katz, chair of the firm’s Employment & Labor and Litigation & Dispute Resolution Groups, has been appointed to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) roster of neutrals for employment matters. Members of the AAA Panel of Employment Arbitrators are selected based on a variety of factors, including a minimum of 10 years of experience in employment law with at least 50% of their practice devoted to employment law. In addition, the AAA considers educational background, honors and awards, and other relevant experience such as speaking engagements and publications on employment law topics. Founded in 1926 after the enactment of the Federal Arbitration Act, the AAA is the nation’s leading provider of alternative dispute resolution services and is dedicated to assisting individuals and businesses of all sizes to achieve fair and efficient outcomes by offering a Panel of Employment Arbitrators in whom parties can have the utmost confidence.
Stuart has practiced employment law at Cohen and Wolf, P.C. since 1992. His practice is unique in that he represents both employers and employees in a wide variety of employment-related matters in federal and state courts, as well as before the AAA and other alternative dispute resolution venues. He has represented clients in a broad range of discrimination and harassment suits, restrictive covenant cases, breach of contract, and wage and hour claims. Stuart has been consistently recognized in publications such as Best Lawyers - in which he is the only lawyer in Connecticut to be named “Lawyer of the Year” for both Management (2018) and Individuals (2016, 2022) - as well as Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, and Super Lawyers.
