LABLAW strengthens its international team with new partner
16 Jan, 2013
LABLAW is pleased to announce the appointment of Sharon Reilly as a partner. Sharon is a dual qualified, bilingual UK and Italian lawyer. She graduated from Glasgow University in 1983 and spent the first four years of her career at Ross Harper & Murphy in Scotland. She then moved on to John S. Boyle, Solicitors, where she worked for six years, initially as a senior associate and later as a partner.
On moving to Italy Sharon spent seven years at the boutique employment firm of Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo, gaining extensive experience in the ‘business of lawyering’ in an international environment. During that time she also collaborated with Franco Toffoletto on key projects for the Lus Laboris Alliance.
In 2011 Sharon co-founded the Italian niche firm, the Employment Law Plant (hELP). She was the partner in charge of the firm’s international business, strategic planning and expansion, setting up and running a network of specialist employment lawyers in more than 60 countries worldwide.
Sharon’s proven track record in managing cross-border HR projects for global companies, coupled with an in-depth knowledge of global employment law alliances, offers ‘added-value’ to clients worldwide.
Commenting of Sharon’s appointment, Luca Failla and Francesco Rotondi, Founding Partners of LABLAW, said: “Sharon’s arrival is in keeping with, and reinforces, our strategy of international growth, originally marked by the launch of L&E GLOBAL in January 2011, which has more than 1,000 specialist employment lawyers in over 30 countries.”
