Founded in 1977, Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart
P.C. is one of the premier labor and employment law firms in the
U.S. But the firm doesn't stop at workplace tangles-it also has
practice groups in business immigration, litigation, employee
benefits, environmental law, occupational safety and health, and
Planting Flags Cross Country
Since its founding, Ogletree has grown with a vengeance, adding
new offices every few years until the last decade, when the firm
opened multiple offices per year in cities from Memphis to St.
Louis to Miami. Most recently, the firm launched a New York City
office with former Seyfarth Shaw partners. As of July 2012, the
firm had 42 offices in 25 states, Washington, DC and the U.S.
Virgin Islands. Recession-era layoff legal issues and the emergence
of new federal labor regulations has helped spur Ogletree's growth
The firm has scooped up some accolades for its management-side
labor and employment practice, including ranking high on
Corporate Counsel Magazine's list of top labor and
employment firms and Chamber's state rankings in the same
arena. In terms of clients, Ogletree assists everyone from
start-ups to a large chunk of the Fortune 50.
