“Clients value the strong communication and investigative skills I bring to their matters. I present the results of my research in a clear, straightforward way so clients gain a thorough understanding of the applicable law, their strategic options, and how any ensuing procedures will work. When they’re thoroughly informed and kept up to date, they can choose paths that work best for their organizations.”
Benjamin “Ben” Landau-Beispiel focuses his practice on employment discrimination issues. He facilitates clients’ legal responses to allegations of hostile work environments and unfair on-the-job treatment based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and facilities-related claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In addition, he handles wage-and-hour work under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Ben’s previous position as a high school English and social studies teacher bolsters his ability to help others comprehend complex legal concepts. In conversations, he never makes assumptions about people’s background knowledge about particular subjects. When a non-lawyer is unfamiliar with a legal topic, Ben starts with the basics and builds up from there, so the person receives a clear picture of the situation and can make an informed decision about their next step.
With an affable, friendly approach, Ben emphasizes the human side of legal work. His interest in personal dynamics assists him in unraveling employment discrimination matters because he brings astute insight into employee interactions and how people understand others’ motivations. He enjoys delving into the facts of each case, figuring out how it all actually unfolded, and determining what legal implications follow from his assessment. As Ben’s legal career continues to advance, he looks forward to providing proactive counseling and training to help clients follow procedures precisely, mitigate their risks, and prevent discrimination claims and other lawsuits from being brought in the first place.
Ben joined Kullman after being a part of the firm’s law clerk program in 2021. In law school at Loyola University, he earned the highest grade in fourteen of his courses, including both Employment Law and Employment Discrimination, and graduated summa cum laude. Ben also served as editor-in-chief of the Loyola Law Review and was the recipient of the Best Casenote Award and the Best Comment Award.
