Our California labor and employment team has been nominated by Benchmark Litigation as a California – Labor & Employment Litigation Firm of the Year, and Partner Roland Juarez has been nominated as a California – Labor & Employment Litigation Attorney of the Year.
Established over a decade ago, Hunton Andrews Kurth’s California labor and employment team is made up of a diverse group of lawyers who offer experienced, strategic and cost-effective representation in all areas of labor and employment litigation. Our lawyers are known for successfully defending clients against the most challenging claims facing employers in California and across the nation.
Hunton’s California labor and employment team has grown significantly over the last few years, adding seven lawyers to its roster in the last year alone.
“California is often at the leading edge of new and complex laws and serves as the legislative trendsetter for the rest of the nation,” notes Los Angeles partner Emily Burkhardt Vicente, who co-heads the firm’s national labor & employment group. “We are focused on growing our practice in areas that are important to our clients and are dedicated to helping them maneuver through the special challenges created by the California employment laws.”
“We are proud of our California labor and employment team and the recognition it has earned from Benchmark Litigation this year,” says Ann Marie Mortimer, managing partner of Hunton Andrews Kurth’s Los Angeles office.
