About

Provided by Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

Our labor and employment group is the largest in Washington State with over 40 fully dedicated lawyers. Other law firms in Washington regularly turn to DWT for employment advice and litigation and frequently attend our employment webinars, receive our e-blasts, and attend our events.

Where other firms see their employment team as a support practice, our group is central to the firm and a profit driver, and the firm invests in our growth. This means that we have a tremendous breadth and depth of experience, with practitioners who are not only skilled in general employment work but who also specialize in niche areas of practice. This positions us to handle almost any type of employment issue. We also work closely with members of our healthcare, hospitality, business transactions and litigation departments, thus further augmenting our significant bench of experience. 

Our clients praise our close working relationships. This manifests in a variety of ways. Our clients enjoy working with us, noting that we bring a sense of empathy and humor. Clients also praise our practical, efficient advice, and feel that our primary motive is to obtain the best result, not simply bill hours. This comes down to our ability to understand our clients’ goals and the unique contours of each case. In short, we take the time to get know our clients and it shows.
