How did you start working with Benesch?
I’ve worked with Margo Wolf O’Donnell for a few years. I was thrilled that she joined Benesch and we are continuing our great, strong relationship.
What does Benesch do for you?
Benesch serves as specialized outside counsel for us. Margo and her team function as an on-call resource—on labor and employment matters.
Margo has also provided EEOC-approved training to our managers on building and maintaining a compliant workplace, free of discrimination, harassment and implicit bias.
What do you like about working with Benesch?
Benesch is innovative and comes up with solutions that work for us. Margo and her team are extremely responsive and get us the answers and solutions we need very quickly and in a cost-effective manner. They help us avoid practices that could lead to legal problems or litigation—and they help us do this nationwide. Benesch’s team stays on top of the law so we stay compliant. Just as important, they help us maintain a positive, productive workplace that helps our people do their best work to serve our members.
