JERMAINE L. KIDD
Since graduation, I spentÂ overÂ six years in private practice focusing on labor and employmentÂ law and representing and advising local and national employers. I knew I wantedÂ to focus on L&E after taking Labor Law, Employment Law, and Employment Discrimination at BC Law. I’ve especially enjoyed the opportunity to represent such a wide range of clients, includingÂ national retailers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies,Â software companies, financial service institutions,Â hospitals, colleges and universities,Â local small businesses, non-profits, and state agencies. Working with each client, both in-houseÂ counselÂ and human resources, providedÂ a unique, inside perspective on their respective business and industry.
I also served for two years as labor counsel forÂ the Massachusetts StateÂ Police where IÂ handled discipline issues, discrimination cases, and other labor and employment matters for the department. It was exciting to work on newsworthy matters. No day was the same, and there was always a new challenge.
Now, I’m anÂ assistant attorney general for the Trial Division of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office where IÂ representÂ and defendÂ the Commonwealth, its agencies, and employees inÂ employment, torts, civil rights, contracts, erroneous conviction, eminent domain, and land use cases. The clients I represent range from the state colleges and universities, Governor’s Office, Department of Transportation, Department of Children & Family Services, and Department of Corrections, to name a few.Â It’s an honor to work under Attorney General Maura Healey’s leadership, and I enjoy the camaraderie of the office.
I look forward to seeing all my classmates and catching up with all of you at our reunion in November.
