Shipman & Goodwin LLP is pleased to announce that Claire Pariano has joined the firm as an associate in the Employment and Labor and School Law practice groups.

“We are delighted to welcome Claire to our group,” said chair of Shipman’s Employment and Labor practice group, Jarad Lucan. “Claire’s employment litigation experience enhances our already deep bench, and she will assist our clients, both public and private, with their day-to-day personnel issues. She will also be a great asset to our School Law group, and able to advise on employment matters specific to education.”

Claire advises, assists, and counsels employers, including schools, on an array of labor, employment, and personnel matters. Claire also has experience litigating employment disputes for a wide range of employers, both public and private, representing them in employment law matters before the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and state and federal court.

Prior to joining Shipman, Claire was an associate at a global employment and labor law firm devoted exclusively to representing management and was also an associate at a nationwide litigation defense law firm. She is admitted to practice in Connecticut, New York and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.

“I am thrilled to be joining a large team of lawyers that is already recognized nationally for the depth and breadth of both its employment and education practices,” said Claire, “and I look forward to bringing my own unique experience to Shipman’s clients in these two crucial areas of law.”
