About this office:

Fisher & Phillips LLP, a national law firm founded in 1943, was one of the first law firms to center its practice on representing employers in labor and employment matters. Now one of the largest in the field, the firm has maintained its commitment to helping employers find innovative legal and practical solutions to their business needs by offering management preventive advice and litigation defense. Working in many areas of employment law, the firm's attorneys offer a wide breadth of expertise covering such traditional subjects as NLRB, EEOC, wage and hour, and disability law, as well as global immigration, pension and benefits, trade secrets and occupational safety and health. In addition to defending employers in labor cases, Fisher & Phillips attorneys help their clients to minimize litigation risks through the development of effective contracts, policies and procedures and through training supervisors and administrators in practical compliance strategies and dispute resolution. The firm's network of thirty-one offices from coast to coast enable its attorneys to handle matters promptly and efficiently in any state. Its focus on labor and employment law permits the firm to provide cost-effective services to employers ranging from large multi-national companies to small, family-owned businesses. Firm attorneys participate actively in state and local bar associations, charitable organizations, business associations and public service activities.

Fisher & Phillips LLP represents employers in a broad range of industries including automotive, banks and financial institutions, credit unions, health care, hospitality, manufacturing, construction, agriculture, transportation and logistics, private schools, colleges and universities, state and local governments, legal and professional service firms, insurance and related services, and non-profit organizations.
