Who Are the Ethics Commissioners? | CitiReport [cached]

Commissioner Dorothy Liu is a partner at Hanson Bridgett, where a partner served as the Ed Lee treasurer.

Dorothy Liu
Dorothy Liu is one of two commissioners appointed under a charter requirement for appointees "broadly representative of the general public. However, in both cases the appointments went to attorneys, making four of the five commissioners with legal backgrounds.
Liu was appointed in April on a narrow vote by the Board of Supervisors.
Liu works for Hanson Bridgett, and since being appointed to Ethics, her firm has signed on as the local legal representative for the America's Cup, whose chair is Mark Buell, who also serves as chair of the Recreation and Park Commission.
After CitiReport contacted Liu to ask how this would be interpreted in light of her appointment to the Ethics Commission, she said that language was now removed from their web site.
Liu announced the expansion of her law firm's practice areas but also said a "fire wall" was erected that included ensuring that she derived no income from his clients and that she would recuse herself in cases involving him or Hanson Bridgett clients.
According to the Hanson Bridgett web site, "Dorothy also handles benefits litigation and defends employers against claims of race and gender discrimination, sexual harassment, disability discrimination, retaliation, breach of contract and wrongful termination in single-plaintiff and multiple-plaintiff matters at the trial and appellate levels."
In a recent matter, Liu voted with other commissioners to dismiss a charge of retaliation, hearing from the city official in closed session but declining to hear from the city employees who filed the complaint.
Commissioner Liu, in response to questions from CitiReport, clarified her view on conflict of interest issues:

Hanson Bridgett LLP is pleased to announce that on April 5, Partner Dorothy Liu was appointed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to serve a 6-year term as Commissioner for the San Francisco Ethics Commission. The Ethics Commission serves the public by enforcing all ethics laws and rules, including campaign finance and open government laws. Its mission is to practice and promote the highest standards of ethical behavior in government.

"Having lived and worked in San Francisco since 1999, coupled with her legal background, Dorothy is certainly well-positioned to help enforce ethics issues facing our local government," said Andrew Giacomini, Hanson Bridgett LLP Managing Partner.
Dorothy is a partner in Hanson Bridgett's labor and employment section. Dorothy regularly provides advice counseling to employers on compliance and human resources matters, including compliance with California's Labor Code. She leads wage and hour class action litigation on issues ranging from off-the-clock and overtime claims to meal and rest period claims under the Labor Code. Dorothy advises employers on managing leaves of absence, disability accommodation, and drafting personnel policies, and represents employers in state and federal courts on all aspects of employment law.
Dorothy was a long-time member of the Community Services Committee of the Asian American Bar Association (from 2000 to 2007) and served as committee co-chair from 2003 to 2007. During her tenure, the committee partnered with the Chinatown Community Development Center on community rebuilding projects, and also partnered with both the Asian Law Caucus and with API Legal Outreach to run legal clinics for low-income San Francisco residents.
