Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris strengthens bench, adds Torlina

Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris LLC (SBH) is pleased to announce Paul Torlina has joined the firm as an of counsel attorney.

Torlina brings with him more than 20 years of experience in labor and employment law and policy development and related litigation with a strong track record of handling cases in state and federal court in Missouri and Kansas. He assists clients in risk management and analysis and the drafting and implementation of comprehensive and effective employment-related policies that reduce the risk of legal claims and exposure.

Relying on strong case management skills in evaluating cases, Torlina formulates efficient and effective legal strategies when litigation becomes necessary. He successfully guides clients through settlement and trial and complex mediation and arbitration processes, always with a focus on minimizing reputational damage and liability. His experience negotiating and administering collective bargaining agreements made with employers serves him well in handling labor union and workers’ rights matters under federal labor laws, including grievance arbitrations.

“We continue to focus on handling our clients’ most complex labor and employment matters,” said Kimberly Jones, SBH managing partner. “Paul’s well-rounded experience that also includes employee benefits law and insurance litigation makes him a perfect fit for our firm and the unique practices we’ve developed.”

Torlina completed his undergraduate studies at Saint Louis University and later earned his Juris Doctor from Saint Louis University School of Law.
