Following is an excerpt:

A former vice president and deputy general counsel for Major League Baseball has joined Epstein Becker Green’s employment, labor and workforce management practice as partner in the firm’s New York office, the firm said on Wednesday.

Jennifer Gefsky brings seven years of experience as MLB VP and deputy general counsel to Epstein Becker. During her time in the league office, she represented the MLB in negotiations for various collective bargaining agreements, as well as employment matters between players and umpires.

“One of the things I am focusing on here at Epstein Becker Green is advising counsel,” Gefsky told Law360 in an interview Thursday. “By that I mean, really helping our clients prevent future workplace issues.”

Gefsky told Law360 that the #MeToo movement that took place in 2017 will bring new focus on sexual harassment in the workplace and she will be advising clients on how to handle and identify these situations.
