Fisher Phillips

Practice/Organization Description

Some of the Savviest Employers Bring Us Their Toughest Problems. Whether it’s a class action involving thousands of potential class members, a jury trial with exposure in the millions, or a union organizing effort or strike that could cripple a company, employers with their choice of lawyers choose Fisher Phillips to handle their most difficult and dangerous cases.

We Are Innovative, Nimble and Always Evolving. We continuously look for ways to work more efficiently and better serve our clients. Our leadership is able to make decisions quickly to direct the necessary resources to a particular challenge. We are able to propose alternative fee arrangements that make sense and we use our broad database of experience to improve our processes.

We Are A Destination Law Firm of Choice for Labor and Employment Lawyers at the Top of Their Game. Many highly successful partners have chosen to bring their practices to our firm. They have been attracted by our entrepreneurial culture, our collegial atmosphere, the opportunity to practice with other excellent lawyers, and our transparent compensation system that rewards great client service.

We Have Deep Industry Experience As Well As Subject Matter Expertise. A great lawyer who is unfamiliar with a client’s business is of limited value. We understand how our clients succeed, the business challenges they face, and how they employ people. Whether it’s manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare, education, financial services, technology, retail, or other industries in which our clients compete, we understand the industry and speak the language.

We Operate Globally As Well As Locally. We have 32 offices and we continue to expand, and we have attorneys admitted in just about every U.S. jurisdiction. We know the local courts and agencies where we practice. We also have the resources to work seamlessly across offices to handle the most complex problems. In addition, we assist our clients with respect to global movement of employees, compliance with employment laws and codes of business ethics of other countries, and international employment contract and employee benefits issues. We have a network of local counsel on six continents with whom we partner to serve our clients anywhere in the world they operate.

Fisher Phillips is committed to providing the highest level of client service, no matter how complex the matter we handle. This means:

You can be confident that we understand your business and industry. We know that context is important. We take the time to learn the business environment in which you operate so that the advice we provide fits your needs.

You will receive a solution to your legal problem that meets your business objective. In every matter we handle we seek at the outset to identify your primary business objective and then find and implement a solution to meet that objective.

You are the focus of our near-fanatical responsiveness. We recognize that we are in the client service business. We know that many labor and employment problems arise without much prior warning and require an immediate response, so we are highly accessible for you. We return calls and emails quickly, and we are available around the clock if necessary.

You can be assured that your time is respected. We know you are busy and must manage many challenges simultaneously, so we do our best to avoid last-minute surprises. We meet deadlines, and we communicate with you efficiently and in plain English.

You benefit from our ability to help you avoid legal problems. While we regularly and vigorously defend our clients in court, we think the lawsuit that was never filed is a better win for you than a defense verdict after a long and costly trial. We provide thoughtful advice and counsel to you designed to anticipate and prevent employee claims and lawsuits, government investigations, and union organizing activity.

You can count on our experience and knowledge for efficient legal counsel. Labor and employment law is all we do. Instead of trying to be all things to you, we offer deep and broad expertise in the area of the law we know best. We get to the point quickly and you do not have to pay for a learning curve.

We invite you to contact us to learn more about what Fisher Phillips can do for you.
