Emanuel is a shareholder at Littler Mendelson PC, a management law firm in Los Angeles. He has represented business groups seeking to invalidate state laws that his clients say allow unions to trespass on their property. Seaton is an attorney at Seaton, Peters & Revnew, a law firm he founded in Minneapolis in 1995. He represents employers before the NLRB, and was previously counsel to the Minnesota House Labor Committee.
