Edward Brill

Proskauer Rose LLP

Edward A. Brill is a partner in the Labor & Employment Law Department. He is the former co-head of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group, which was honored in 2011 by Law 360 as one of the five nationwide “Appellate Groups of the Year,” and by the National Law Journal with a spot on its “Appellate Hot List.”

Ed devotes a significant amount of time to representing educational institutions, including Columbia University, New York University, Yale University and Polytechnic Institute. He has served as lead counsel in numerous employee representation and unfair labor practice cases before the National Labor Relations Board, and employment litigation involving faculty, senior administrators and staff. He has represented each of these institutions in disputes involving union efforts to organize graduate student teaching and research assistants.

Ed also represents Quinnipiac University in a widely publicized Title IX class action alleging that the university’s athletic program fails to comply with various requirements of Title IX. Among other issues, the case involves the issue of whether competitive cheer is properly recognized as a varsity sport for purpose of Title IX.

Over the course of his career, Ed has briefed and argued dozens of appeals in both the federal and New York state appellate courts. Recently, he was a principal author of the brief in 14 Penn Plaza v. Pyett, in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that a collective bargaining agreement provision requiring arbitration of age discrimination claims is enforceable.

Ed has represented employers in collective bargaining, arbitration and administrative proceedings before the EEOC, state civil rights agencies, the National Labor Relations Board and the National Mediation Board.

He also has represented employers in all types of employment litigation, both in New York and a number of other jurisdictions, including Washington, D.C., Florida, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, California, Georgia, Tennessee and Puerto Rico.

He also provides guidance to clients, on an ongoing basis, on a wide range of employment and labor law matters, including employee discharge and discipline, equal employment opportunity obligations, development of personnel policies, and downsizing and reductions in force.
