Alifanz Brings Extensive Experience in Litigation and Legal Counsel to Bullard Law
February 8, 2021
Bullard Law welcomes Marc E. Alifanz
to the firm. Mr. Alifanz arrives with extensive experience in litigation and legal counseling. Mr. Alifanz is passionate about helping employers manage and mitigate their legal employment risk; not only through reactive management of issues after they arise, but by avoiding them altogether through respectful, educational, and positive HR Management.
For over 17 years, Mr. Alifanz has helped businesses do just that as a big-firm litigator, corporate in-house counsel, and non-profit executive.
As Assistant General Counsel at KinderCare Education, Mr. Alifanz advised on HR and employment issues ranging from individual employee risk to large wage and hour class action litigation. He oversaw the Employee Relations function and a team dedicated to investigating and responding to agency claims and demand letters. He also facilitated leadership meetings, trained managers with creative and engaging presentations, oversaw the company’s litigation portfolio and managed attorney relationships nationwide.
Before going in-house, Mr. Alifanz practiced at the New York firm Proskauer Rose for three years before moving to Portland in 2006 where he joined Stoel Rives as an employment litigator. Mr. Alifanz has served as Interim General Counsel and Chief Human Resources Officer for two Portland-area health care non-profits (FQHCs). He is also the co-creator of the popular, educational (and surprisingly humorous) Hostile Work Environment podcast.
