Brooks Pierce attorneys Natalie Sanders and Jessi Thaller-Moran will speak at the Campbell Law Review’s Symposium, “Pandemic Pandemonium: Hindsight Really is 2020,” on March 18. This year’s symposium will discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on bankruptcies, Qui Tam lawsuits, employment law and constitutional law in North Carolina.
Sanders and Thaller-Moran will be joined by Gavin Bell as panelists to discuss labor and employment issues during the pandemic in the session entitled, “Working in a Pandemic: Employment Law & Qui Tam Claims,” moderated by Melissa Essary, Dean Emerita and professor at Campbell Law School.
Sanders provides counsel and defense to businesses in all aspects of the employment relationship. Her 25 years of experience as an attorney, operations manager, entrepreneur, and community volunteer allow her to relate well to management and provide nuanced guidance in complex matters. Recently, she has given multiple presentations, authored articles, and been featured in news pieces, including in The New York Times and Forbes, on COVID-19 and its effect on the workplace.
Thaller-Moran focuses her practice on employment law and litigation, counseling employers on compliance with state and federal laws. She also uses her experience in the North Carolina Business Court to develop strategies for clients embroiled in a wide range of complex business litigation disputes, helping them to think creatively about opportunities for resolution and zealously advocating for their interests in court when the need arises. Most recently, she has devoted much of her time to counseling clients on appropriate responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including new federal paid leave laws and staffing adjustments made necessary by stay-at-home orders.
