Tim Singhel is a traditional labor and employment relations counsel and business partner with more than 20 years experience with companies, both as an in-house leader and outside consultant. Throughout the course of his career, Tim has successfully opposed unionization both domestically and internationally: never having lost an election, negotiating numerous contracts across the country and across borders; never losing a vote, implementing and overhauling policies, developing training programs, leading HR teams, and helping companies drive their missions and develop their human capital. His experience spans multiple industries: healthcare and medical device, construction, manufacturing, retail and service companies.
Tim graduated from college and law school striving for excellence in the law so that he could help people understand the system and avoid conflict: figure out why the fires started in the first place, not just be there to put them out when they do. After serving the country as a federal law clerk for two years, Tim started private practice as a labor and employment attorney, partnering with organizations to fulfill their missions and servicing both their customers and employees by maintaining that direct connection with their workforces, so they could always be the best in-class and the employer for which everyone wants to work.
In an effort to become an even better business partner and servant leader, Tim spent the second half of his career as an in-house counsel and HR operations/compliance leader, expanding his role beyond labor and employment law while always maintaining a strong connection to traditional labor relations matters both domestically and internationally. During this time, Tim not only honed his advisor skills, he also came to a greater understanding of business operations generally and working with cross-functional teams within companies at all levels.
Tim's proven track record has engendered a keen understanding that – although there are reasons why employees might want to unionize – fostering better communication and caring about each employee's development (individually and as part of the overall team) creates a win/win relationship that is a far better means to those ends. Being part of the PSLC team allows Tim to bring all of his diverse experiences together with this philosophy to bear for our clients' advantage.
