Philip Lamborn is an attorney in the Labor and Employment practice group, with a particular expertise litigating wage-and-hour single-plaintiff and class, collective, and CA Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (“PAGA”) action claims. His skillful utilization of analytics and technology facilitates the cost-efficient and effective management of these claims while also expediting their resolution.
I primarily defend employers from wage-and-hour claims filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act and/or the California Labor Code, including those alleging off-the-clock, meal and rest break, unpaid overtime, minimum wage, or pay stub violations. My experience specifically includes the defense of staffing agencies and litigation of other joint employment issues. This background in litigation also provides a useful lens through which I am able to advise clients on day-to-day employment issues and help them ensure compliance with the federal, state, and local employment laws, including the particular complexities and nuances in California.
My practice also extends to the investigation and defense of discrimination, wrongful termination, workplace harassment, disability accommodation, and retaliation complaints and lawsuits.
California will almost certainly continue to lead the nation in enacting employee-friendly requirements at both the state and local laws. Businesses that are not partnering with informed counsel to vigilantly monitor and implement these changes will be vulnerable to significant exposure, including via class and collective action litigation.
Prior to joining Nixon Peabody, Philip worked in private practice at a national law firm. During law school, Philip honed his skills as an advocate during his externship at a bicoastal law firm, where he focused on employment litigation, entertainment law, and commercial litigation. He also interned at the San Diego Public Defender’s Office.
