Human Resource Executive® magazine has featured John C. Romeo, a Director in the Employment & Labor Law Department at Gibbons P.C., on its list of the “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys,” in the “Up-and-Comers” category.

This is the seventh edition of the “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys,” a collaboration between Human Resource Executive® and Lawdragon, a media company that has issued "best of" lawyer lists since 1989. This guide is intended to offer corporate counsel and human resource professionals a guide to finding lawyers who can help resolve difficult employment situations and comply with workplace-related laws and regulations. This year’s list of 210 employment lawyers featured 40 up-and-comers (who have been in practice for less than 20 years) recommended by corporate counsel.

At Gibbons, Mr. Romeo represents both private and public employers in all aspects of federal and state labor and employment laws. He routinely provides practical strategic advice to clients dealing with difficult employee issues involving all aspects of the employment relationship. Mr. Romeo has extensive experience defending single plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and class claims under state and federal employment laws, including claims for discrimination, retaliation, and harassment, as well as wage and hour claims. Mr. Romeo also serves as legal counsel and lead negotiator during labor negotiations, and has extensive experience handling labor arbitrations and defending unfair labor practice charges before the NLRB. In addition, he has assisted employers in developing, drafting, and implementing employment policies, compliance and ethics programs, drug-free workplace programs, and executive employment agreements. He is a former member of the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Labor and Employment Committee and was active with the organization’s Delaware Valley Chapter (DELVACCA).
