Stephanie Gail Lee Senior Associate Employment Law & Litigation

Los Angeles

Stephanie helps clients navigate the intricate and rapidly evolving world of employment litigation.

Clients feel at ease knowing that Stephanie will work tirelessly to guide them through wage-and-hour class and representative actions, as well as single-plaintiff litigation involving claims of whistleblower retaliation, fraudulent inducement and breach of contract. Companies, particularly those in employee-friendly states such as California, must contend with an ever-changing array of procedural tools and laws, and rely on Stephanie to serve as a trusted advisor. In addition to legal nuances, the high-profile matters Stephanie handles are further complicated by reputational risk. To deliver a clear path through these complexities, Stephanie works with her team to carefully and creatively balance each case’s dangers, opportunities and impact.

She has managed matters from start to finish and has litigated cases in federal and state courts, as well as before various administrative agencies. She also helps her clients avoid litigation by counseling on wage-and-hour compliance, terminations and severance agreements, non-compete and non-solicitation covenants and employee handbook provisions.
