Partner / Chair, Litigation

Glaser has earned a reputation as a go-to attorney for both plaintiffs and defendants in wrongful termination cases, which have become increasingly prevalent in the #MeToo era. In early 2020, she won a reported $20 million wrongful termination arbitration judgment for former NBCU exec Josh Goldstine, whose firing the company linked to harassment. Earlier in her career, she made headlines for securing a $50 million settlement for Keith Olbermann in his lawsuit against Current TV and locking a $32.5 million payout for Conan O’Brien in his high-profile departure from “The Tonight Show.” She was back on the case for O’Brien in 2020, defending the late-night host, his prodco and TBS in a copyright infringement suit concerning comedic material that aired in 2015.
