Nixon Peabody LLP has elected 11 as partners of the law firm.
Becoming a partner in the Rochester office is Kate Saracene, labor and employment, who leads the health and welfare employee benefits team. She advises employers, brokers and third-party administrators on plan compliance, with particular focus on health care reform and benefits for same-sex couples.
“We’re helping clients rethink how they offer health coverage while remaining in compliance with rapidly-evolving health reform rules,” Saracene said.
She brings extensive experience in human resources, labor relations and employee benefit plan administration from previous positions at Xerox Corp.
The other 10 new partners are in the New York City; Chicago; Boston; Palo Alto, Calif.; and Washington, D.C., offices.
