We place great emphasis on providing effective and efficient advocacy, responsive client service, and sound practical advice. From its inception in 1947, Shawe Rosenthal decided to remain a boutique practice of about 15 attorneys, select and centralised in Baltimore, Maryland, rather than expand into regional offices. This philosophy has contributed to a professional excellence that has attracted clients from across the nation. All of our clients are represented in their general business affairs by other law firms, indeed some of the largest law firms in the country, many of whom have their own labour law sections. The firm’s clients have, nonetheless, continued to turn to Shawe Rosenthal for advice and counsel in the labour and employment field because of our firm’s specialised knowledge and experience, and capability to provide advice quickly and efficiently. Shawe Rosenthal is the sole Maryland law firm belonging to two major alliances of management labour and employment lawyers: The Employment Law Alliance and Worklaw Network. Both of these professional associations afford Shawe Rosenthal access to practitioners of the highest calibre across the country and around the world. This gives our firm an unparalleled ability to provide high-quality services to meet our clients’ employment law needs, wherever they may have facilities.
