Guest Host:

Tawny Alvarez
Partner
Verrill Dana

Tawny is a partner in Verrill Dana’s labor and employment practice group.  She believes that a company’s culture defines its business and prides herself on assisting clients comply with the law, while simultaneously creating an amazing place to work.

Tawny centers her practice on the understanding that the employment landscape is ever-changing and that many organizations do not have the time or resources to keep abreast of all of these changes—from medical (and recreational) marijuana’s effect on drug testing, to the effect of social networking in the workplace and mobile devices’ effect on wage and hour issues. In this evolving landscape she recognizes that for companies to remain profitable and successful they must be proactive, as opposed to reactive, to these employment issues.

Guest:

Janet Mills,
Attorney General
State of Maine
Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate

Janet Mills has spent her life fighting for the people of Maine. From her time serving as a District Attorney and State Representative to her current role as Attorney General, Janet has been a tireless advocate for working families, small businesses, and those who have been left behind.

After the 2008 economic crisis left thousands of Maine families facing bankruptcy, it was Janet who successfully sued financial ratings company Standard and Poor’s, holding them responsible for their role in the collapse. Then, Janet used settlement money to fund programs that helped Mainers avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes.

More recently, Janet has led the charge to fight Maine’s opiate crisis. When the Governor’s office refused to take action, Janet took on the pharmaceutical companies, suing them for lying to patients about their products. Bent on saving lives, Janet went on to use settlement funds from these lawsuits to purchase significant amounts of Narcan and distribute it to police officers around the state, in many cases personally driving shipments to rural Maine police stations.
