Walter Stella and Di Addy Tang were honored by the Justice & Diversity Center (JDC) of the Bar Association of San Francisco with the Outstanding Volunteers Crystal Award. The JDC is one of the largest and most distinguished legal services providers in San Francisco.

Stella, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Labor and Employment Department, advises employers on challenging workplace issues and provides practical solutions that minimize legal exposure in a heavily regulated business environment. He represents some of Silicon Valley’s most dynamic corporate players, from Big Tech giants and high-profile tech-adjacent foundations to emerging businesses and ambitious startups. Stella frequently operates as outside general counsel on employment law, meaning that major clients rely on him as their first point of contact when employment issues arise. He is widely respected for his ability to assess problems, design smart legal strategies, and oversee cost-effective resolutions. Stella handles employment law litigation, settlement negotiations, and arbitrations; negotiates executive contracts and advises directors and officers on personal liability and indemnification matters; and provides proactive state and federal regulatory counselling.

Tang, an associate in Cozen O’Connor’s Labor and Employment Department, represents employers in wide-ranging litigation and administrative agency actions, including wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, and disability accommodation. She works with clients every step of the litigation process, from early case evaluation through trial.
