Benesch is pleased to announce that Margarita S. Krncevic and Shaka S.J. Sadler have joined the firm.
Margarita is a skilled labor and employment attorney with prior in-house legal experience at a Fortune 500 financial services company in Washington, D.C. She counsels employers to comply with federal, state, and local laws in taking workforce actions, such as hiring, progressive discipline, terminations, requests for religious or ADA accommodations, managing FMLA (including intermittent) leave, and mitigating co-employment issues. Margarita represents clients in workforce disputes at jury and bench trials, hearings, arbitrations, mediations, and administrative proceedings before federal, state and local agencies.
Margarita received her J.D. from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 1997 and her B.A. in International Affairs from George Washington University in 1993.
Shaka’s practice involves representing and counseling management clients. She regularly drafts legal documents for clients, including motions, legal briefs, and position statements and advises clients in a wide range of employment matters, including discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation, labor relations, and wage and hour issues.
Shaka received her J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in 2016 and her B.S. in Psycology and Political Science in 2012.
“We are very excited to add Margarita and Shaka to our steadily growing practice group,” said Eric Baisden, Chair of Benesch’s Labor & Employment Practice Group. “We are committed to bringing in top talent that will have an immediate positive impact for our clients, and the addition of these two certainly adds to the tremendous bench strength we have already been able to cultivate.”
