When you know what you're good at, you stick to it. Jackson
Lewis specializes in the labor and employment law arena, and, with
800 attorneys and a staggering 55 offices across the country, the
firm has become one of the largest providers of employment law
services in the nation.
A Focus on Labor and Employment Law
Since its founding in 1958, Jackson Lewis has relentlessly
pursued growth in new territory. With a presence in states from
California to New York and even Puerto Rico, the firm has set up
dozens of new offices in recent decades and continues to launch new
branches in unexplored regions.
Jackson Lewis has practices running the gamut of employment law,
including affirmative action and preventative counseling, and is
ready to tackle issues revolving around employee benefits, sexual
harassment, labor relations, immigration and substance abuse and
drug testing. And with a motto of "all we do is work," Jackson
Lewis attorneys take their mandate seriously.
It seems more than a few companies are interested in enlisting
the firm's labor management advice-Jackson Lewis' client list
includes large corporations like IBM and Burger King. And the firm
has even been able to woo titans of industry to its exclusive
domain. Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, for example, used to contract
with around 50 law firms to handle its employment matters, but
awarded all its employment work to Jackson Lewis after the firm
agreed to cap its fees.
Jackson Lewis has one of the most active employment litigation
practices in the United States, with a current caseload of over
6,500 litigations and approximately 650 class actions. The firm is
also a charter member of L & E Global Employers' Counsel
Worldwide, an alliance currently of 14 workplace law firms in 14
