The offices of Chicago based law firm Franczek Radelet P.C. have received a complete makeover courtesy of NELSON, a global design, architecture, engineering, and consulting services firm. The same office space located in the city’s Loop district that Franczek Radelet has occupied since it first opened its doors more than 20 years ago underwent a four phase complete redesign thanks in part to the longstanding relationship with its original designers—NELSON’s Andrea Brandt, Principal, Project Director, and Theresa Williams, Principal, Design Director.
Franczek Radelet is pleased to welcome Melissa Sobota as an associate in its Labor & Employment Practice Group. Melissa concentrates her practice in both labor and employment law. Her labor experience includes collective bargaining for municipalities and county employers. She has experience handling union certification petitions, severance petitions, as well as litigating unfair labor practice charges before the Illinois Labor Relations Board. She has also advised employers on medical and insurance benefit plan issues in relation to contract negotiations and employee disputes.
