Kellee J. Cueto focuses her practice on providing advice and guidance on employment law matters to business owners and HR professionals. Kellee prides herself in helping clients navigate the disconnect that sometimes exists between black letter law and real world practices, allowing her clients to achieve outcomes that make good business sense.

Kellee’s early career involved working for both boutique and national law firms handling a variety of litigation matters, before focusing on labor and employment law. Her work included counseling clients on matters ranging from wage and hour disputes, claims of discrimination and harassment, leave and disability accommodation consultations, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, and terminations. Kellee has since spent a significant part of her career as in-house counsel in the Human Resource Outsourcing (HRO) industry.

Kellee is also a Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional (CCEP) and is able to assist clients in conducting risk evaluations, developing internal controls that support legal and regulatory compliance, and creating internal compliance programs. Kellee frequently serves as a guest lecturer at law schools and as a panelist at industry events on HR and employment law related topics, issues facing in-house counsel, women in the legal profession, and alternative legal careers.

Kellee’s depth of in-house experience representing global staffing companies and one of the country’s largest professional employer organizations (PEOs) uniquely qualifies her to provide legal support across many industries, including those that utilize non-traditional employment models such as outsourced labor and PEOs. Kellee enjoys getting to know the business of her clients in order for her to best provide practical, proactive guidance that assists in the reduction and mitigation of risk, allowing clients to focus on their respective businesses.
