Michael H. Leb, Esq. has been a full-time neutral since 2008.  He has nearly 30 years of broad-based legal experience with a unique blend of traditional labor law, litigation, and transactional expertise.  He practiced at Latham & Watkins, held senior executive positions with two Fortune 50 companies, and represented plaintiffs at a top-tier trial boutique and as a solo practitioner.  His litigation experience includes both the trial and appellate work in public and private sector labor and employment law, including class actions, as well as federal and state court commercial litigation.
