For more than 30 years, Langevin has represented clients in employment-related matters including discrimination and wrongful termination litigation, sexual harassment cases, and providing advice and training to businesses and other organizations on personnel issues.
“With Judy’s arrival, our employment and risk management practice takes a big step forward,” said Dan Millea, a member of the Zelle Hofmann executive committee who is resident in the firm’s Minneapolis office. “She is keenly aware of the importance of employment law and how it intersects with information governance and eDiscovery, which will help our business clients effectively manage risk, including the risks associated with cyber exposures and employees’ use of social media.”
"Having previously represented Zelle Hofmann on employment-related matters, I know that the firm has a strong commitment to providing services that every business needs," said Langevin. "My practice is committed to making the law and legal requirements accessible, manageable and understandable for my clients. Zelle Hofmann has exceptional resources, infrastructure and talent that will make this happen.”

A prolific speaker and author, she has shared her insights on myriad employment-related matters, including employees’ use of electronic communication and devices, sexual harassment in the workplace, equal employment laws, and discrimination charges, among others.
