Tod’s innovative work has enjoyed national and local media coverage. He litigated a case involving a covenant not to compete, which resulted in the establishment of what has been referred to as “an important new interpretation of the rights.” His representation as lead trial counsel in a Family Medical Leave Act case was noted to “illustrate the importance of effective, good-faith communication” between an employer and employee. And in successfully representing a nationally renowned reporter, he was referred to as a “heavy-hitting employment law attorney.”
