As a partner in Milwaukee-based Michael Best & Friedrich LLP’s labor and employment relations practice group, Elizabeth Odian defends businesses in employment ligation matters involving a variety of topics, including discrimination and harassment, retaliation under Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and Family Medical Leave Act. 

“With previous experience as a general litigator, Beth has a deep understanding of how the courts view decisions and the aftermath, uniquely positioning her to provide her clients with well-thought, strategic advice and counsel them to avoid litigation and in the event of litigation, protecting them from liability,” said David Krutz, firm managing partner.

Odian also is assistant general counsel, working alongside Michael Best’s HR department and firm leadership on employment matters ranging from employee leave to discipline to contracts. She also mentors several associates in the labor and employment group, and she is involved with the firm’s summer associate program, including teaching an internal investigation course. 

Outside of the office, Odian serves as a board member on the Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee.
