Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP has a strong track record in class and collective actions as well as in equal employment opportunity disputes. Practice head Robert Lian has more than 25 years of litigation experience. The recommended Daniel Nash defended Ernst & Young in a highly publicized dispute in which the Supreme Court ultimately ruled that an arbitration agreement entered into by the plaintiff was enforceable, thereby dismissing a putative wage-and-hour class action. In another work highlight, Nash and Stacy Eisenstein were engaged by the NFL after a running back appealed his suspension under the league’s personal conduct policy. Other clients include Starbucks, Caesars Entertainment and Home Depot. Other highlighted individuals are Nate Oleson and Esther Lander. All aforementioned practitioners are based in Washington DC. Greg Knopp and Gary McLaughlin in Los Angeles, Richard Rabin and Lauren Leyden in New York, and Donna Mezias in San Francisco are also noted.
