Palmer Kazanjian Wohl Hodson LLP is pleased to announce that Larry Kazanjian, managing partner, has been awarded the “Best of the Bar honor” by the Sacramento Business Journal.

Each year, the Sacramento Business Journal recognizes local attorneys who are nominated and vetted by their peers. Nominees are awarded points based on a formula that gives equal weight to two factors. The first factor is the number of nominations received, with nominations from attorneys in different firms counting for more points than those from attorneys within the same firm. The second factor considers the opinion of 20 well-known lawyers serving on a peer-review panel. Receipt of this award confirms that Larry is held in high-esteem by his peers as a labor and employment attorney.

Larry has practiced labor and employment law for more than 30 years. He has a wide-ranging litigation practice, and he has defended employers responding to claims of discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination. He also frequently defends wage and hour class and collective actions. His general employment practice involves providing practical advice to keep employers out of litigation and to comply with the full panoply of state and federal employment laws.

Larry also represents management in all aspects of labor relations, including proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board involving representation petitions, collective bargaining, unfair labor practice charges, contract interpretation, employee discipline disputes and Section 301 claims. Larry’s clients include construction companies, professional organizations, hospitals, retail businesses, advertisers, beverage importers and distributors, wholesale distributors, farms and food processing businesses, and insurance companies.

Larry prides himself on vigorous advocacy but maintains cordial, professional relations with opposing counsel, which is conducive to resolving disputes.
