Strategic Counsel Announces Addition of Angela J. Reddock
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Downtown Los Angeles-based Strategic Counsel PLC announced yesterday that Angela J. Reddock has joined the law, public policy and strategic communications consulting firm.
Reddock, a sitting member of the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees, will provide counsel to public and private sector clients facing claims or legal action for alleged wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, and will provide corporate training programs to labor and employment clients and advise them on issues such as preventing workplace harassment and discrimination, the firm announced.
The firm said that it added Reddock in order to expand and serve its statewide portfolio of public policy and government affairs clients with an emphasis on post-secondary education, workforce development and employment and labor legal affairs.
It also said that the addition of Reddock, a contributing legal expert for KFWB-AM 980’s “Turning Point Business Minute” and for KCBS-2/KCAL-9 television news programs in Los Angeles, will broaden the firm’s reach and extend its capabilities in client employment and labor law matters.
Cynthia McClain-Hill, managing director of Strategic Counsel, said that Reddock brings “remarkable know-how, high level contacts, exceptional talent and unique insights.”
Reddock was previously a partner with Los Angeles-based Carroll, Burdick & McDonough, LLP where she co-chaired the firm’s Employment Litigation and Counseling Group, and before that she was the founder and managing partner of her own firm, The Reddock Law Group.
Admitted to the State Bar of California in 1996, she is also a former partner of Los Angeles-based Collins, Mesereau & Reddock & Yu, LLP, and studied English and political science at Amherst College in Massachusetts before graduating from the UCLA School of Law.
Commenting that Reddock “tremendous abilities and some of the best contacts in the business,” and that she “is able to reach public policy-makers at the highest levels of government,” McClain-Hill said there was no question Reddock would significantly add to the firm’s capabilities and advance the interests of its public affairs clients.
“Angela is a virtual employment and labor law practice unto herself, and that fact alone will provide our corporate legal clients with focused help in building and sustaining positive workplace environments that reduce their exposure to litigation.”
Reddock is a member of several other boards, and chairs the Los Angeles African American Women’s Public Policy Institute, Ability First, and the Willie J. & Armenta D. Thornton Scholarship Fund.
She also serves as a commissioner on the Los Angeles City Transportation Commission and the Los Angeles County Local Government Services Reform Commission, where she is the chair of the Taxicab Taskforce, and as a hearing officer for the Los Angeles city and county civil service commissions.
She previously served as a commissioner on the Los Angeles County Small Business Development Commission and as a member of the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.
