Before Edwards Wildman
David began his legal career at the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, D.C., where he briefed and argued a variety of unfair labor practice and representation cases in the United States Courts of Appeals throughout the country. In 1983, he entered private practice representing management with Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett, practiced for a number of years at Proskauer Rose, and in 1992 founded Marshall & McEvoy, a labor law boutique that he and his partner brought to the Firm's New York office in 2004.
National Labor Relations Board Election Victory
In 2013, a team of Edwards Wildman Labor Law lawyers from several US offices secured a significant NLRB election victory for a supplier of security services for a chain of New England hospitals when the client's employees in Massachusetts voted overwhelmingly to reject the United Federation of Special Police and Security Officers' invitation to organize.
