)-- Fisher & Phillips LLP announced today that Bob Kilgore, attorney in the San Antonio office and Stephen J. Roppolo, managing partner of the San Antonio and Houston offices, have been named to the 2015 Texas Super Lawyers list. Fisher & Phillips is a national management-side labor and employment law firm.
Super Lawyer selections are based upon independent research and peer nominations from the Thomson Reuters-owned publication. Recognition in Super Lawyers demonstrates an exemplary degree of respect and professional achievement the lawyer has earned from peers, with no more than 5 percent of attorneys in Texas selected to appear on the list.
Kilgore has represented Texas employers for more than 30 years in claims involving discrimination, benefits, compensation and non-competes/trade secrets. He frequently appears before federal and state courts and government agencies including the National Labor Relations Board, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, United States Department of Labor, and Texas Workforce Commission.
“It’s a privilege to be selected for this recognition,” said Kilgore. “I’m honored that my colleagues and peers have taken note of the commitment we make to each of our clients.”
Roppolo has counseled employers for 25 years through claims involving allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination, defamation, breach of employment contract, and non-competes/trade secrets. This includes federal and state court litigation and administrative proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, United States Department of Labor, and Texas Workforce Commission.
“It is gratifying to be chosen by my peers for this honor,” said Roppolo. “At Fisher & Phillips, we strive to serve our clients with the utmost skill and dedication. It’s rewarding to know that others see and appreciate our efforts.”
