2018-07-09 - Robert Sanders

Robert Sanders' interest in the law began in 6th grade when he “passed the bar” and became a lawyer in his class’ student government. Back then, he helped students avoid playground infractions. Now, Robert helps employers of all sizes deal with problem employees by navigating the intersecting tangles of state and federal leave, accommodation, and discrimination laws as part of Husch Blackwell’s busy labor and employment practice. His negotiation and mediation background help Robert find creative solutions to difficult problems. Robert is an approachable lawyer and a great member to get to know!

There are many benefits to being Spotlighted.  The most obvious ones are networking with your fellow Section members and marketing yourself and firm.  Everyone visiting the Section homepage will see your Spotlight that week.

Another easy to overlook benefit is the increased exposure to the general public.  Being Spotlighted will help optimize your online presence via search engines using terms relating to labor and employment law simply by being identified on the Section website.


If you wish to be spotlighted by the Section, please fill out the Spotlight Questionnaire.

The ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law's Member Spotlight program is designed to focus attention on members and their work with the Section and Committees.  A new Spotlight will appear on the Section website weekly.

Previous spotlights remain online in the archive section.  This makes it very easy to go back and look at all the previous Section members who have been spotlighted.

We encourage you to fill out the questionnaire linked in the top right of this page if you are interested in being spotlighted.  While we can’t guarantee that everyone will be spotlighted, we will endeavor to spotlight as many as possible over time.
