Morrison & Foerster is pleased to announce that Andrew Turnbull has joined the firm’s Employment + Labor Group in the Northern Virginia office, where he will represent employers on a wide range of complex employment litigation and counseling matters. Andrew joined MoFo from another AmLaw 30 firm, where he successfully defended clients against claims alleging misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of post-employment restrictions, wage and hour violations, discrimination, and retaliation, and helped them develop practical and proactive compliance strategies to minimize various employment and labor risks.
Mr. Turnbull’s arrival also bolsters the firm’s leading Government Contracts + Public Procurement Group. A primary focus of his practice is helping companies navigate the unique employment issues that arise when doing business with the federal government, including advising on all aspects of OFCCP compliance, creating and implementing affirmative action plans, defending OFCCP audits and onsite investigations, conducting mock pay equity audits, drafting and developing business ethics policies and programs, and complying with the Service Contract Act, E-Verify, and the Drug Free Workplace Act.
Mr. Turnbull’s prior experience as a human resources manager for a company recognized on the Inc. 500, an annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States, allows him to provide a practical perspective on the complex issues facing employers. He received his J.D. with honors from The George Washington University Law School, where he served as a notes editor for The George Washington Law Review. While in law school, he interned at the Commercial Litigation Branch of the United States Department of Justice.
