The National Labor Relations Board announced on June 21, 2010, that Lafe E. Solomon, a career NLRB attorney, has been named Acting General Counsel by President Obama, replacing Ron Meisburg who resigned to return to private law practice. Solomon had most recently been Director of Representation Appeals at the NLRB. 

 According to the Board’s press release, Solomon began his Agency career as a field examiner in Seattle in 1972. After obtaining his law degree, Solomon took an attorney position in the NLRB’s Office of Appeals. He later transferred to the Appellate Court Branch.  After two years, Solomon left the General Counsel side of the Board and joined the staff of former Board Member Don Zimmerman. He also worked on the staffs of Board Members Donald Dotson, Robert Hunter, John Higgins, James Stephens, Mary Cracraft, John Raudabaugh, William Gould, Sarah Fox and current Chairman, Wilma Liebman.

 The NLRB General Counsel is the Board’s top investigative and prosecutorial position, and has supervisory authority over all Regional Offices across the country.  He also guides policy on issuing complaints, seeking injunctions, and enforcing the Board’s decisions.
