Irene Scholl-Tatevosyan is a labor and employment associate. She primarily represents employers in all aspects of labor and employment matters, including in ERISA litigation matters. She works on matters involving high-stakes commercial litigation.
I handle all phases of employment litigation with the Labor and Employment team, from discovery to dispositive motion practice and trial. I litigate wrongful termination, discrimination and retaliation cases as well as wage and hour actions. With our experienced labor team, I provide strategic advice regarding labor disputes, collective bargaining and other matters under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board. Recently, I second-chaired a hearing before the Board. I am currently part of a team defending an ERISA class action challenging the prudence of certain plan investments and amounts paid in recordkeeping fees.
I litigate complex commercial disputes involving contracts, breach of fiduciary duty, copyrights and trademarks, among other things. Additionally, I worked on high-stakes litigation involving art displaced during times of conflict.
I launched the firm’s esports task group focused on this emerging gaming industry and help lead this team. Our esports team is comprised of more than 30 attorneys from multiple offices and specialties working with clients in a variety of areas from merchandising manufacturing agreements to gambling regulations compliance and IP licensing issues. We are active members, contributors, and thought-leaders in the esports community. For more information, visit the firm’s Esports Trending Topics page.
Unionization is and will continue to be a topic of conversation in the esports industry. While the history and function of unions in traditional sports is instructive, for esports, there are also key differences that must be considered that make esports unique, such as the fact that there are multiple game titles instead of a single game that is played.
