President, The Glennon Law Firm, P.C.

Years in current role: 9

What has been your biggest success over the past year?

One of our biggest successes this year was publishing our first Glennon Guide book about non-compete agreements in the health care industry, which reached number one on Amazon’s law and contracts books list, and we received recognition and accolades for it. The book’s release coincided with the Federal Trade Commission’s proposed rule banning non-competes, giving us an opportunity to showcase our expertise through national media interviews. We have a second Glennon Guide being published later this spring. And our firm expanded its geographic reach, adding attorneys, representing professionals and executives across New York state and neighboring states.

What are your expectations for the next 6-12 months?

We have exciting developments in the next 6-12 months. Our second Glennon Guide book, focused on non-compete agreements for non-health care employees, will be published soon. We plan to continue expanding and formalize our expansion in other cities with additional offices. We are excited about the future and committed to continued excellence in serving our clients.

What advice would you give someone just starting out in labor and employment law?

If you’re starting out in labor and employment law, here are some thoughts for you to consider. First, stay curious and keep up with the latest developments in the ever-changing field. Second, remember that employment relationships are between people, so treat everyone with respect and understanding. Finally, understand people and their perspectives to provide effective and strategic legal advice. These principles will help you establish a successful career in this ever-evolving field.

If you could practice one area of law that you haven’t practiced in your career, what would it be and why?

I enjoy being a litigator and practicing in our firm’s areas, so I’m not particularly drawn to any one subject area at this time. However, as a litigator, I often clean up messes created by documents and contracts drafted by transactional attorneys. For this reason, perhaps I should suggest that I try practicing transactional law for business and employment areas to see if I can prevent litigation. But humor aside, the burgeoning private space industry is fascinating, and it could be interesting to explore this area of law in the future. There are many legal issues to navigate, such as regulatory compliance, intellectual property and commercial transactions. It would be exciting to help shape the legal landscape of this developing industry.

What do you enjoy most about practicing law in the Rochester area?

I enjoy many aspects of practicing law in this region. The local and regional bar are very collegial. There are few attorneys I do not know, and we all tend to work together in a professional manner. The area bench is similarly collegial and supportive of all of the new technologies implemented since COVID. The use of video conferences and virtual appearances has been wonderful and very efficient for all involved, which ultimately helps to reduce the time involved in legal matters, leading to lower client invoices. And we have a good amount of interesting and challenging legal work in the Rochester area.
