Law360 has named Tritia Murata, Los Angeles partner and co-chair of the firm’s Global Employment + Labor Group, an MVP of the Year for Employment. The award recognizes attorneys who had the biggest wins and made the most significant contributions to their practice groups in the past year.
A true star in the California labor and employment market, Tritia’s hallmark is her knack for obtaining court victories and developing innovative solutions to strategically dispose of high-exposure wage-and-hour class actions and representative actions brought under the California Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA). Tritia’s proven skills in the courtroom have led to a number of successful outcomes in complex cases in both state and federal court. Tritia pursues an aggressive strategy to defeat class certification or otherwise dispose of class and PAGA actions, and has notched successes on behalf of leading clients spanning various industries.
Outside of the courtroom, Tritia provides clients with practical, business-minded advice regarding various labor and employment law issues, including wrongful termination, employment discrimination, harassment, wage-and-hour laws, employment policies and procedures, trade secrets, and unfair competition. A member of Morrison & Foerster’s Women’s Strategy Committee and the founder and partner sponsor of the Los Angeles office’s Working Parents Affinity Group, Tritia champions the promotion of diversity, both in the firm and in the legal profession.
