Taft Chicago partner Daniel Saeedi led a discussion on diversity and inclusion during the National Conference of Lawyers and Certified Public Accountants (NCLCPA) on June 25 in Chicago. During the two-part session, participants shared best practices to recruit and retain women and diverse professionals in organizational ranks and how the accounting and legal professions are addressing the #MeToo movement.
The NCLCPA is the official liaison body between the American Bar Association and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Its purpose is to foster excellence of professional performance in the public interest by providing a forum for identifying, discussing and proposing recommendations for the resolution of public issues of professional concern between the two professions.
Saeedi focuses his practice on labor and employment law and corporate litigation. He has represented governmental and private clients in workplace discrimination litigation, class action defense, policy formulation and litigation regarding employment agreements. In his corporate practice, he has represented directors, officers and shareholders in a wide range of corporate and securities-related disputes.
