Roger Quillen, managing partner and chairman of the Management Committee for Atlanta-based Fisher & Phillips LLP, one of the nation’s leading labor and employment law firms, has been named to “The Top 100 Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” by Human Resource Executive magazine. This is the sixth consecutive year Quillen has earned the honor.
Human Resource Executive magazine compiled the list of influential employment attorneys on the basis of curriculum-vitae analyses, evaluations by clients and peers and reporting by the staff of Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based news and networking site for lawyers and clients.
Having joined Fisher & Phillips in 1980, Quillen has served on the firm’s Management Committee since 1997 and has been the firm’s chairman and managing partner since 1999. Established in Atlanta in 1943, the firm has continued to grow under Quillen’s leadership to its current 300 attorneys in 31 offices across the United States.
During his law career, Quillen argued cases in most of the federal courts of appeals, with subject matter varying from review of NLRB decisions to class action arising from changes in retiree health insurance plans. He also represented employers in collective bargaining and counsels them on strategies designed to prevent claims and lawsuits.
Quillen graduated from The Ohio State University College of Law with honors. He also earned a master’s degree from Purdue University and two bachelor’s degrees at The Ohio State University.
Also named to “The Top 100 Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” was Charles Caulkins, partner in the Fort Lauderdale office and member of the firm’s Management Committee.
