About our speaker…
Over the last 30 years, Marty N. Martenson has earned a reputation for outstanding results when representing management in a variety of capacities throughout the United States. Whether in the courtroom defending claims of discrimination, negotiating collective bargaining agreements, or advising clients as to the labor and/or employment landscape, clients benefit greatly from his high level of experience, leadership, and insight. It’s no wonder Marty is frequently asked to speak on such topics at seminars, trade shows, and to numerous industry groups and associations across the country.
Marty frequently represents multi-national companies in connection with labor and employment and general human resources due diligence on both the buyer- and seller-side. Marty has particular experience representing in-bound foreign corporations without current U.S. operations. Cross-border employment issues can often obstruct a deal, and Marty identifies risks, exposure, and options for mitigating such issues with the goal of efficiently reaching a deal. Further, post-deal, Marty guides clients from the first new hire through instituting company-wide labor and employment practices for thousands of employees.
Marty has received numerous accolades for his labor and employment work, including the Martindale-Hubbell AV Peer Review Rating. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Marist School and Sophia Academy, both in Atlanta. In his college days, you could find Marty on the NC State football team playing for the Wolfpack.
