Today’s spotlight: Jill Chasson

Title: Partner, Coppersmith Brockelman

Background: Chasson represents businesses in employment law matters. She provides timely, practical advice regarding personnel matters and compliance with workplace laws. When disputes arise, Chasson represents employers before administrative agencies and in litigation and arbitration proceedings.

Source of pride: “Winning my first jury trial remains meaningful, 16 years later. In addition to securing a verdict for the client, the trial was important for my professional development. It forced me to be confident in thinking on my feet and provided valuable insight into jurors’ thought processes.”

Surprising fact: “I was a member of the 1992 U.S. Olympic swimming team that competed in Barcelona, Spain.”
