Unlike many firms, our labor and employment practice covers the full array of issues affecting the work environment, including workplace safety, immigration, employee benefits, and executive compensation, in addition to more common areas like discrimination, retaliation, harassment, non-competition and non-solicitation, wage/hour, union avoidance, union campaigns, and collective bargaining.

A distinct advantage we offer our clients is the ability to serve as internal or external general employment counsel seamlessly without the need to bring in any other firm—a unique service Chambers recognized in last year’s coverage. Our office regularly engages in such relationships with our clients in which an Ogletree Deakins attorney serves as the client’s on-site employment counsel, typically on an interim basis. This arrangement allows our clients to confidently retain our office to take care of its employment needs wherever they may arise, without the need to engage another law firm in another jurisdiction. This is an advantage largely unavailable at any of the other Chambers-rated firms
