)-- Roger Quillen, chairman and managing partner of Fisher & Phillips LLP, one of the nation’s leading labor and employment law firms, has been named for the third consecutive year to “The Top 100 Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” in the United States by Human Resource Executive magazine.
Human Resource Executive magazine compiled the list of influential employment attorneys on the basis of curriculum-vitae analyses, evaluations by clients and peers and reporting by the staff of Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based news and networking site for lawyers and clients.
Quillen joined the firm in 1980 and has served on the firm’s Management Committee since 1997 and has been the firm’s chairman and managing partner since 1999. The firm, based in Atlanta, has grown steadily during the past decade to its current 260 attorneys and 25 offices across the United States.
Quillen’s practice involves litigation covering a wide range of employment discrimination issues, employee welfare benefit plans, the Railway Labor Act and issues arising before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. His special emphasis is in federal appellate litigation.
Quillen has argued cases in most of the federal courts of appeals, with subject matter varying from review of NLRB decisions to class action arising from changes in retiree health insurance plans. He also represents employers in collective bargaining and counsels them on strategies designed to prevent claims and lawsuits.
He has received repeat recognition in Georgia Super Lawyers and as a Georgia "Legal Elite" and was listed in The Best Lawyers in America. He also co-authored Labor and Employment Law in Georgia (LEXIS Publishing) for more than 10 years.
Quillen graduated from The Ohio State University College of Law with honors in 1980. He also has a master’s degree from Purdue University and two bachelor’s degrees from The Ohio State University.
