Mintz is pleased to share that Member Micha “Mitch” Danzig has been selected to the National Law Journal’s 2020 list of Employment Law Trailblazers, which recognizes professionals who are agents of change in the legal industry and in the employment landscape. Mr. Danzig was profiled in a special supplement published on March 2.
Mr. Danzig is a versatile attorney who litigates employment, complex-commercial, and trade secret disputes and counsels clients on matters in these areas. Companies rely on his representation in court and before both state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Justice, and similar California agencies. Mr. Danzig is well versed when it comes to advising clients on the unique employment laws of California, such as the Private Attorney General Act of 2004 and the recently amended California Fair Pay Act. He also advises clients on federal laws including the Fair Labor Standards Act and Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act.
In his Trailblazers profile, the National Law Journal highlighted Mr. Danzig’s recent victory for Mintz clients Alphatec Holdings, Inc., a medical device company dedicated to revolutionizing the approach to spine surgery, and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Miles. Mr. Danzig also commented on future explorations in employment law, specifically as it relates to employee mobility: “As long as there are smart people looking for ways to restrict movement, there will always be approaches to get around California’s public policy against noncompetition provisions.”
