About Fisher Phillips

Fisher Phillips specializes in one thing: labor and employment law. With a legal team of more than 375 attorneys in 32 offices throughout the U.S., the Fisher Phillips sprawl deals mostly in defense-side labor and employment cases.

Management's Best Friend

Founded in Atlanta in 1943, Fisher Phillips has grown from a regional to national player. The firm has established experience in traditional labor and 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.

The firm continues 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 Capstone Logistics, LLC from a retaliation lawsuit, helped a casino fend off a race discrimination case, and won a case against the NLRB for Domino’s Pizza franchisee Cowabunga, Inc.

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, several local TV newscasts, 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, how to comply with immigration laws, and international employment issues.
