Phelps Dunbar is a regional law firm of more than 280 attorneys serving clients in Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and North Carolina, as well as in London. Our expansion began in the mid-1980s when we committed to become the pre-eminent law firm for companies and individuals needing transactional or litigation services in the South. Our goals were and are simple: create a significant presence so that our clients need only one firm for legal services throughout the region; deepen client relationships through a commitment to understand clients' businesses and their goals; and advance clients' interests by providing excellent, effective and efficient legal services and creative solutions across all areas of our practice, including litigation, business, employment, insurance and admiralty.
Our labor and employment team, consisting of over 30 attorneys located throughout the region, is dedicated to partnering with our clients to achieve their business objectives. We believe in counseling proactively and planning strategically with employers, with the goal of avoiding litigation where possible, and achieving cost efficient results when litigation is the best or preferred solution. Because we believe good planning is the best way to achieve business objectives and avoid employment issues, we make it our business to share knowledge and experience with clients through ongoing training and education, including seminars, breakfast briefings, newsletters, and email alerts with updates on breaking employment law news.
Phelps Dunbar's labor and employment practice group provides valuable solutions to large and small, public and private employers, across the spectrum of employment law and employee benefit issues, including labor relations, employment discrimination and harassment, wage and hour, safety and health, leaves of absences, compensation issues, union concerns, civil rights and constitutional law issues, immigration, pension and welfare plan design and administration, as well as regulatory compliance and human resources issues. Our lawyers participate in all phases of state and federal court litigation and arbitration, and have experience in a broad array of administrative charges and investigations before federal, state and municipal administrative agencies.
