Murtha Cullina Adds Talent, Prepares for Fall Seminars Murtha Cullina has added four attorneys to its labor and employment practice group: partners Matthew K. Curtin and Erek Sharp, counsel Melanie N. Aska and associate Martha M. Royston.

Chaired by Patricia E. Reilly, the group’s expertise includes employment litigation and counseling, wage and hour, traditional labor, ERISA, employee benefits and executive compensation. The group regularly represents employers in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.

Reilly called this “a very exciting time for our Labor and Employment Group,” praising the attorneys as “extremely talented” and “a well-rounded and diverse team.” The group presents seminars and training on virtually any labor or employment topic, including new developments in the law, sexual harassment prevention, employee relations, managing leaves of absence, and diversity and inclusion.

This fall, the group is offering sexual harassment prevention training seminars, and the group will present its annual labor and employment Update on Oct. 11. See the group’s blog for more information. www.murthaemploymentlaw.com.

Halloran Sage Volunteers Help Hartford Area Habitat A team from Halloran Sage recently helped in the construction of a Habitat for Humanity home in the Greater Hartford area. Employees from the law firm’s Hartford office, located at 225 Asylum St., traded their desks and computers for hammers and screw guns as they drilled holes for HVAC and hung siding atop outside scaffolding.

Halloran Sage has offices in Hartford, Danbury, Middletown, New Haven, New London and Westport, as well as a branch in Washington, D.C.
