Partner, Labor and Employment
Nancy Inesta, partner in BakerHostetler’s Los Angeles office, advises and represents clients on employment and labor law. In addition to her traditional labor and employment practice, her focus in the last year has been guiding employers on responding to COVID-19. Inesta quickly developed new approaches to employment issues in the confusing days of March 2020. Taking a leadership role at BakerHostetler, she provided daily updates to the firm’s chairman and chief operations partner on protecting firm personnel. Inesta used this experience to assist in developing internal policies for BakerHostetler and also advise her clients. She kept clients informed with webinars and email alerts – sharing best practices for employers. Her work remains focused on California, and through COVID-19 she strengthened relationships with LA hospitality clients and become an expert in the area for entertainment industry clients. Nancy continues to advise companies on COVID-19 regulations including CAL-OSHA, federal, state and local guidelines.
