I’m saddened to report that John Liebert, a founding partner of Liebert Cassidy Whitmore, passed away today. You can visit Liebert Cassidy’s website (click here) for further information. John Liebert was truly one of the great pioneers of public sector labor law in California and in the nation. He will be missed by all of us in the field.
Jeff Sloan, a partner in my firm, knew John well and had this to say, “John was and is the most esteemed public sector labor lawyer in California, and beyond that an extraordinarily kind, compassionate and forward-thinking person. From its very humble beginnings, he built LCW into what is now by far the largest public sector labor and employment law firm in California. Our firm and our partners will miss him.”
