Offit Kurman Promotes Susie Cirilli to Principal

For Immediate Release

Philadelphia, PA | October 8, 2020

Offit Kurman is pleased to announce the promotion of Philadelphia-based Labor and Employment attorney, Susie Cirilli, to Principal effective immediately. Ms. Cirilli started with the firm in April 2020, and in six short months, has proven to be a hard working and tireless advocate for clients.

 “The title of ‘Principal’ has long been associated with significant professional and personal achievement,” said Howard Kurman, Offit Kurman co-founder and Management Committee member. “This status is not easily earned at any law firm, much less at ours. Of course, becoming a Principal, while conferring impressive status on the elevated attorney, also imposes on that attorney the implied obligation to uphold the highest ethical and moral standards that our profession demands.”

Ms. Cirilli assists clients with issues involving the ADA, FMLA, and Title VII claims. She litigates on matters related to hostile work environment, discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, race and disability. Ms. Cirilli also represents employers in fact-finding conferences and mediations before the PHRC and the EEOC. Ms. Cirilli also assists her clients regarding employment matters, including terminations, drafting and negotiating separation agreements and drafting and revising employment agreements, employee handbooks, and non-compete and non-solicitation agreements.

Ms. Cirilli counsels companies on employee issues surrounding the CARES Act and the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act. Additionally, she prepares strategies for businesses as they operate through COVID-19 and provides risk management guidance to businesses negotiating the myriad of rules and regulations related to the Coronavirus.

Ms. Cirilli is admitted in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, the Middle District and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and in the Federal Court for the District of New Jersey. She has been named as a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star since 2016.
