About Fisher & Phillips LLP
Since 1943, the attorneys at Fisher Phillips have been committed to providing value to our clients. We do one thing - represent employers in labor and employment matters.
Our clients know their legal problems will be treated as business problems and that we strive to help them avoid legal problems. We believe the lawsuit that’s never filed is a better win for a client than a costly defense verdict.
Although skilled and tenacious advocates, our attorneys recognize that the most aggressive and expensive approach may not always be the best solution to a client's problem. We seek to identify the client's primary business objective, design a solution to fit the objective, and implement that solution in the most efficient manner possible.
By performing compliance audits, providing the right policies, procedures and training, and offering thoughtful advice and counsel, we assist clients in preventing employee claims and lawsuits, government investigations, and union organizing activity.
We’re in the client service business and know that many labor and employment problems arise without much warning and require an immediate response. We meet deadlines and provide plenty of adv...ance time where client review of documents is needed. And we communicate with our clients in plain English.
Founded in Atlanta, we're national with 32 offices and more than 350 attorneys. Our attorneys practice before state and federal courts and administrative agencies in virtually every state.
