Tanja Lueck Thompson ’93 and Jonathan Kaplan ’79 recently were named by the Labor Relations Institute to the list of Top 100 Labor Attorneys in the United States for 2009. Both are attorneys with the Memphis-based law firm Kiesewetter Wise Kaplan Prather.

Thompson and Kaplan were named to the prestigious list after being selected from more than 9,000 labor attorneys throughout the U.S. The honor puts both of them in the top one percent of the nation’s labor attorneys.

Both Thompson and Kaplan specialize in labor and employment law, including representation of clients before the National Labor Relations Board in labor arbitrations and in contract negotiations. They also specialize in assisting management in union-free initiatives and conducting supervisory training.
