Conn Maciel Carey LLP, a boutique law firm with national practices in labor and employment, workplace safety (OSHA and MSHA), and litigation, is pleased to announce that Lindsay DiSalvo has been promoted to Partner in the firm’s Washington, DC office.
Ms. DiSalvo defends employers in OSHA inspections, investigations, and litigation. She also represents and advises employers in all phases of the employer-employee relationship. Ms. DiSalvo was the firm’s very first Associate, joining the firm the day it was founded in 2014.
“She has been a backbone of the firm since we launched,” says Eric Conn, a co-founding partner and Chair of the firm’s national OSHA Practice. “I am excited to finally call her my Partner. She has grown into one of the finest OSHA lawyers in the country.”
“I have been working toward this my entire career,” Ms. DiSalvo says. “It is particularly exciting to be chosen by people I have been working with since the beginning. I feel like I helped build this firm, and now I am a Partner. I feel honored.”
Mr. Conn adds, “As a specialty boutique firm, what sets us apart is the mastery of the nuance of the practices for which we are known – workplace safety and employment law. Ms. DiSalvo adds great depth to our Partnership in both of those areas. As a result, she has earned ours and our clients’ trust. They often ask for her specifically.”
Ms. DiSalvo is looking forward to taking on a greater leadership role in the firm and will continue to help turn the firm’s vision into reality.
“As a Partner, I hope to focus on further building our Employment and Safety law practices, as well as the firm’s internal programs to support our attorneys and the community,” she says. “This is such a thrilling opportunity and I look forward to continuing to provide the best support I can for our clients and the firm as a Partner.”
“I have worked with Ms. DiSalvo since she graduated law school and it has been a pleasure mentoring her and watching her develop her legal skills and practice,” says Kara Maciel, a co-founder and Chair of the firm’s Labor & Employment practice. “I am thrilled that this home-grown attorney has been elected Partner, not only as our first associate to partner promotion in our firm’s seven-year history, but also because Ms. DiSalvo models a core tenant of our firm’s culture in her leadership and example of work life balance.”
The firm’s Partnership now comprises 33% women with Ms. DiSalvo’s advancement.
