Samantha C.
Grant

Samantha Grant has been representing employers for more than 20 years in administrative, arbitration and trial proceedings in labor and employment matters, including single plaintiff, class and collective actions. She has extensive experience litigating discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, breach of contract, fraud, defamation, trade secret, covenants not to compete, and unfair competition cases, among others. She also advises employers on litigation avoidance strategies and local, state and federal compliance matters, as well as conducts investigations and management and workforce training. The insight and experience she gained while on a two-year secondment, as in-house employment counsel for a Fortune 50 company, was invaluable in her becoming a particularly pragmatic outside counsel.

Samantha is Chair of the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law and Vice-Chair of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s Advisory Board. She is also a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers and a member of the American Employment Law Council and the National Employment Law Council. She frequently speaks and writes on developments related to labor and employment law, alternative dispute resolution, diversity and inclusion, and ethics.

Among other accolades, the Daily Journal named Samantha one of the 2020 “Top 100 Lawyers in California,” the Los Angeles Business Journal recognized her as one of the 2020 “Top Women Attorneys in LA” and Benchmark Litigation named her a 2020 “Labor and Employment Star – California.” She has also been named to the lists of "Thought Leader, Labour & Employment” and “Who’s Who Legal: Labour & Employment” by Who’s Who Legal on multiple occasions.
