WILMINGTON, DE - Sheldon N. Sandler, a partner in Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor’s Employment Law Section, was awarded the “First Annual Sheldon N. Sandler Award for Distinguished Service to the Employment Law Alliance” on September 16, 2011. Stephen Hirschfeld, Esquire, the founder of the Alliance, and fellow Young Conaway Employment Law partner Barry Willoughby had the honor of presenting the award to Mr. Sandler. It will be awarded annually to one member of the ELA "in recognition of extraordinary service and commitment to our organization."

During the awards ceremony, Mr. Willoughby noted that this award told only part of the story. He attributed to Mr. Sandler the establishment of the management labor and employment practice in Delaware and for building the state’s largest practice group. Mr. Sandler remarked, upon receipt of the award, that his contributions to the ELA were “greatly overshadowed” by the numerous colleagues and friends he has met through the Alliance and for the national and international services he has been able to provide for his clients through the ELA.

The Employment Law Alliance is the most comprehensive network of labor and employment attorneys in the world. Mr. Sandler and the attorneys of Young Conaway have been the exclusive Delaware affiliate of the Employment Law Alliance for over 11 years.
