Julayne Lazar has focused her over twenty-year legal career exclusively on employment and labor law. At the beginning of her legal career, Lazar was employed at several administrative agencies, including the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Department of Unemployment Assistance. These experiences afforded her unique, first-hand knowledge of the agencies’ regulations that she continues to practice today.
Before joining Rubin and Rudman, Lazar was a partner at a management-side employment and labor firm. In this capacity, Lazar defended multi-state clients in employment litigation and labor arbitrations in a broad depth of industries. Additionally, Lazar provided practical advice on all aspects of the employment life cycle, developed compliant HR processes and policies, and counseled her clients to find creative solutions to employment situations.
“Julayne has considerable experience counseling and representing clients across a wide range of industries and employee populations,” said Denise Murphy, Chair of the firm’s Labor and Employment Department. “Her expertise is sure to add depth to key areas of our practice that will be of great value to our current and future clients,” Murphy added.
“I am so pleased to welcome Julayne Lazar to Rubin and Rudman’s Labor and Employment practice group,” said Elizabeth Sullivan, Partner. “Having worked with Julayne for a number of years in the past, I can attest to her wealth of knowledge and the confidence clients place in her guidance,” Sullivan added.
“Part of what drew me to the firm is the strong reputation of their accomplished Labor and Employment attorneys and their collaborative, innovative approach,” said Lazar. “I’m excited to grow our shared commitment to creating tailor-made solutions for each client,” added Lazar.
Lazar received her J.D. in 2000 from the New England School of Law. Before that, she earned a B.S. from Bryant University.
Lazar is admitted to practice in Massachusetts, the United States District Court, and the United States Supreme Court.
