Conn Maciel Carey LLP, a boutique law firm with national practices in workplace safety (OSHA and MSHA), labor & employment, and litigation, is pleased to announce that Beeta B. Lashkari has joined the firm as an attorney in its Washington, D.C. office.
Ms. Lashkari, a former attorney-investigator at the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB), will advise and represent clients in a wide-range of inspections, investigations, and enforcement actions, including those from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the CSB, and state and local regulators. As one of only four attorney-investigators at the CSB, Ms. Lashkari was involved in several major investigations of chemical accidents.
“Beeta brings a unique array of experience and perspective that will enhance the safety and health law services we provide to employers across all industries, and particularly chemical and petrochemical manufacturers,” said Eric J. Conn, Chair of the firm’s national OSHA practice. “We’ve been busy this year expanding our firm, and Beeta is another superb addition to our already deep bench of OSH law experts.”
Ms. Lashkari will also support the firm’s labor and employment practice group in managing workplace investigations, including whistleblower and retaliation claims, defending employers in EEOC discrimination and harassment charges, and counseling clients on myriad legal issues employers face in the workplace.
Ms. Lashkari said, “I am excited to join the highly-respected team of attorneys at Conn Maciel Carey and what I believe to be the nation’s top OSHA practice. Having been an investigator at the CSB, I know that the OSHA team is well known for its tremendous accomplishments in the field of workplace safety. The same also can be said for the firm’s leading labor & employment practice. Although leaving government was a big personal decision, I simply could not pass up the opportunity to join such a successful, dynamic group of attorneys.”
