Fisher & Phillips LLP is one of the largest firms in the country representing management in the areas of labor, employment, civil rights, employee benefits and immigration law. Since our founding in 1943, we have developed and maintained a depth and breadth of expertise that is difficult for most other firms to match. Our range of experience and expertise enables us to bring efficient and practical solutions to today's labor and employment law problems.
Our attorneys practice before state and federal courts and administrative agencies in virtually every state. We have offices across the country and we are continuing to expand.
What distinguishes us from many other law firms is our businesslike approach to solving our clients' legal problems. Although our attorneys are skilled advocates who are experienced in successfully trying cases and arguing appeals, we recognize that the most aggressive (and expensive) litigation strategy may not always be the best solution to a client's problem. We also recognize that most clients would prefer to spend less money on legal services than spend more. In every matter we handle we seek to identify the client's primary business objective, design a solution to fit that objective, and then implement that solution in the most efficient manner possible.
We also place a high priority on responsiveness to our clients' needs. We recognize that many labor and employment problems arise without much prior warning and require an immediate response. We return calls quickly, we have systems in place to locate attorneys who are away from the office or to provide a backup attorney who can respond immediately, and the attorneys who are principally responsible for a client are accessible around the clock in case the need arises.
Additionally, while courts and legislatures continue to expand the scope of employee rights, we recognize that employers have important rights, too. We work with our clients to maximize their ability to exercise those rights, such as the right to aggressively screen applicants for employment, the right to insist that employees acknowledge that they are employed at will where appropriate, the right to require arbitration of employment disputes, the right to implement comprehensive policies regulating conduct in the workplace, the right to discipline employees where necessary, the right to terminate employees who perform poorly or engage in misconduct, the right to protect trade secrets and proprietary information, and the right to educate employees about the benefits of remaining union free.
