Practice Description:  
After serving as a hearing officer and investigator for the National Labor Relations Board in New York City, Jill Goldy began her formal legal career as an employment law counselor and litigator at Seyfarth Shaw, where she successfully litigated on behalf of employers in several federal and state court jurisdictions. She also led the Labor Relations Division of the City of Chicago’s law department during Harold Washington’s administration.

She then spent the next 20 years at Motorola, Inc. (later Motorola Solutions, Inc.), where she was a corporate officer, heading the global labor & employment law practice and serving as the company’s chief ethics and compliance officer. During her tenure at Motorola, Ms. Goldy worked closely with the company’s senior leadership and Board of Directors on all significant employment law matters, including numerous restructurings, leadership changes and international M&A activity, directed complex investigations and employment litigation, and negotiated hundreds of employment and dispute resolution agreements, with consistently outstanding results.

Since co-founding Feis Goldy LLC she has established a successful plaintiff’s side employment practice, obtaining significant, positive outcomes for numerous employees, senior managers and executives in difficult, often complex, employment situations. Ms. Goldy also serves as a neutral in conducting investigations and/or training on employment law matters for employers and other organizations. Historically, she has often been a speaker on employment law and ethics & compliance matters, including conferences sponsored by the American Arbitration Association, the National Employment Law Association, the American Employment Law Council, the Association of Corporate Counsel, and the Chicago-Kent College of Law.

Ms. Goldy currently serves on the Administrative Board of the Cornell University Council. She is the immediate past Co-Chair and a former Co-Vice Chair of Cornell's President's Council of Cornell Women. She is a former member of the Smith College President's Midwest Advisory Council, the American Employment Law Council Advisory Board, and the H.R. Policy Association Labor Law Advisory Board.
