Brian Rochel Named to 2017 Up and Coming Attorneys List

Teske Katz Kitzer & Rochel is proud to announce that partner Brian Rochel has been named to Minnesota Lawyer’s list of 2017 Up & Coming Attorneys. Mr. Rochel was among one of only 23 honorees this year, all chosen by an outside panel consisting of past Honorees. Attorneys were selected based on their professional accomplishments, leadership and service to their community and profession, and achievements in their first 10 years of practice.

Mr. Rochel practices on behalf of employees in employment-related legal disputes. He has held numerous leadership roles in the legal community, including Vice President of the Minnesota chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA), a board member of the 8th Circuit NELA Chapter, a board member of the Federal Bar Association’s (FBA) national Younger Lawyers Division, and co-chair of the FBA Labor and Employment Section’s Publications and Public Relations Committee. Mr. Rochel has written and spoken on a wide variety of topics in employment law and has been instrumental in organizing several employment law conferences throughout the country. Mr. Rochel also contributes to his community by serving as a volunteer facilitator and board member of the Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice Partnership since 2011. This program is a pioneering non-profit organization that utilizes restorative justice to address the harm caused by juvenile offenders through South Minneapolis by facilitating meetings between victims and offenders as an alternative to traditional juvenile justice. Mr. Rochel has been named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers every year since 2012, and most recently was selected as “Author of the Year” by the Federal Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Section for his outstanding work.
