Jeffrey (Jeff) Hollingsworth



Jeff Hollingsworth, a partner for more than 20 years in the firm's Labor & Employment practice, litigates complex class employment cases for large commercial businesses and public employers. His extensive experience permits rapid and incisive case assessment, aggressive strategic and tactical planning, and efficient litigation management tailored closely to the particular facts and circumstances. His concerns also extend to practical but vital collateral issues often related to large litigation, such as public relations and employee morale. In addition to his litigation practice, Jeff also counsels employers on prevention of class claims, and in this arena focuses on statistical analysis of employment transactions such as compensation, promotion and reduction in force.
