Jim Hammerschmidt Provides Commentary in Law360 Article on the Effects of a Trump Presidency

Jim Hammerschmidt, Employment Law Co-Chair

Jim Hammerschmidt provides commentary in Law360 article, “BigLaw Reacts To Donald Trump's Election To The White House” (November 9, 2016). With the upcoming Trump presidency, there will be legal ramifications. Attorneys around the country weighed in on what some of those ramifications might be and what they mean for citizens.

“A Trump presidency will be a mixed bag for employment lawyers in the Maryland, D.C. and Virginia metro area. While Trump may roll back many of President Obama’s recent executive orders that create regulatory burdens on employers and reign in aggressive federal regulators, he will likely have little impact on the recent wave of local legislation involving background checks, minimum wages, family and sick & safe leave and other employment laws and policies. In this area at least, local legislators, state agency initiatives and lawsuits based on local or state law will keep traditional employment lawyers busy regardless of Trump’s approach.”

Jim is Co-Chair of the firm’s Employment Law group. Full coverage of the article, “BigLaw Reacts To Trump's Election To The White House” can be found on Law360 online (subscription required).
