Christopher Cole, Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green
Recognized as a Lawyer of the Year in Employment Law — Individuals
We selected eight Lawyers of the Year for portraits and asked them to share a favorite quotation and to tell us why they love what they do. These profiles appeared along with Woodward/White’s annual Best Lawyers in America list, as published in our November issue.
“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” – Vince Lombardi
Why do you love what you do? “Among other things, I represent individuals and businesses involved in employment disputes, boards of directors involved in governance disputes, and employers dealing with the sudden and suspicious departures of key employees. And these sorts of honors are nice recognition that, among clients and peers, you are doing a good job explaining and advocating for the client. But the reality — for me, anyway — is that I am surrounded by terrific lawyers committed to responsiveness to the client’s needs and excellence in our written work and arguments to the courts. I am just incredibly grateful I work for a law firm that includes so many — too many to list — skilled trial lawyers and serious thinkers on whom I can rely.”
