Over the course of his years in the practice of law, traditional labor law has been a focal point in Lance’s career. This has included Lance’s active leadership in over 20 union avoidance matters, over 120 labor negotiations (including master negotiations involving 20-plus union locals), numerous investigations and trials before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), advice and counsel on preparation for labor disputes, court hearings involving picket line misconduct, and several labor arbitration disputes. In addition, he served as Labor Relations COE while working for a multinational manufacturing company and led labor relations for a power and gas utility operating in the Gulf South.
