About Fisher & Phillips LLP

As any keen observer may glean from the firm's web address (www.fisherphillips.com) and Twitter handle (@labor_attorneys), FisherPhillips specializes in one thing: labor and employment law. With a legal team of more than 350 attorneys in 33 offices throughout the U.S., the FisherPhillips sprawl deals mostly in defense-side labor and employment cases.

Management's Best Friend

Founded in Atlanta in 1943, FisherPhillips has grown from a regional to national player. The firm has established experience in traditional employment law subjects like NLRB practice, EEOC, wage and hour and disability law, as well as kept abreast of emerging issues in fields like employee benefits and immigration law compliance.

Despite obstacles, (like when Hurricane Katrina made the firm's New Orleans office uninhabitable,) the firm has continued to add offices by the truckload. Its client base is diverse, including employers in the agriculture, automotive, casino, health care, real estate, transportation and manufacturing sectors, among others. It has successfully defended clients like Russell Stover Candies (from a pregnancy discrimination suit), helped a casino fend off a race discrimination case, and counseled fellow attorneys at Chicago's Kaplan, Begy & Von Ohlen after a former partner filed an age discrimination suit.

Writing the Book on Employment Law

The firm's attorneys have established themselves as a prolific bunch, often writing for labor law-related journals or sitting in as talking heads on employment matters for news organizations like NPR, Sirius Satellite Radio, Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Miami Herald, to name a few. Among their topics-best hiring and firing practices, tips for employers hoping to avoiding litigation stemming from workplace romances, how to throw safe, non-litigation inducing holiday parties, and international employment issues.
