Dean E. Westman
For 35 years, Dean enjoyed the challenge of negotiating labor contracts in such a way as to preserve management’s prerogatives while always cognizant of the client’s fiscal goals. In addition to contract negotiations, Dean gained significant experience in assisting clients with wage and hour challenges, all types of employment discrimination proceedings, grievance arbitration cases, and the full array of NLRB unfair labor practice and election proceedings.
Along the way, Dean consistently attempted to convey to clients the importance of preventing labor and employment law complications, whenever possible, through management training and the review of personnel actions in advance of their implementation.
Now that he has retired from the practice of law, Dean’s personal interests fill his time. They include woodworking, target shooting, taking walks in the woods with his wife Ann, and visiting with family members.
