Sheppard Mullin represents trucking and logistics companies of all sizes in dozens of different jurisdictions and states. Our team of attorneys has a deep understanding of the industry and provides particular expertise in the area of labor and employment, where we regularly advise some of the top companies in balancing their employee needs with business priorities. Our team represents trucking and logistics companies in wage and hour litigation, most notably on a class and collective basis, as well as in “bet the company” misclassification and “off-the-clock” cases. Given our litigation experience, we also routinely advise our clients in pre-litigation audits of wage and hour compliance. Additionally, we represent our trucking and logistics clients in employee discrimination, harassment, and retaliation litigation.
Recognizing that competitive position is vital to our clients, our team has significant experience in preventing trade secret misappropriation by departing employees and in stopping employee and customer poaching by competitors and departing employees.
Our team is also well-versed in assisting clients on issues as they relate to tax, employee benefits, transactions, securities, environmental law, insurance, insolvency, and regulatory compliance.
The multidisciplinary nature of our team is intended to match our clients’ needs in the perennially shifting legal landscape. Our attorneys recognize the importance of working with clients to arrive at efficient solutions to different issues. Our priority is to keep our clients competitive and compliant while minimizing legal risks.
