Garland, Chair of the firm’s National Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Steering Committee. “We are delighted to welcome Erika to EBG. Her reputation as one of the most prominent international labor and employment lawyers in the United States makes her a natural fit as we continue to grow the work we do—providing global workforce solutions for employers under our alliance with Deloitte Legal,” he added.

“There are incredible synergies that exist between the international employment work that I have been doing for many years and that of this practice, including through the groundbreaking alliance with Deloitte Legal,” said Ms. Collins. “I am extremely excited to join the talented group of attorneys at EBG and look forward to helping build the firm’s reputation as a leader in global management workforce solutions. I am very optimistic about all that we can accomplish together.”
