Vol. 39 No. 9


Leslie A. Gordon is a secret lawyer who has been working as a freelance legal affairs journalist for more than 10 years.

When Maja Hazell graduated from Georgetown University Law Center in 1998, her immediate goal was to join a large law firm.

“I wanted to gain lots of experience,” Hazell recalls. “I was interested in labor and human resources and I saw myself going in-house eventually.” Working at New York’s Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP for seven years, Hazell first handled employment litigation and then took on advice and transactional work in the executive compensation and benefits group.
