G. Todd Butler represents clients in matters involving employment, civil rights and appellate issues. In particular, Mr. Butler defends companies and individuals in litigation, including class actions, relating to constitutional law, employment discrimination, wage and hour, wrongful termination, and harassment.
A portion of his practice is dedicated to traditional labor matters, such as defending unfair-labor-practice complaints before the NLRB and arbitrating cases concerning the interpretation of collective-bargaining agreements.
He also defends clients’ rights before administrative agencies, including the EEOC, OSHA, and state unemployment commissions, and provides counsel on workplace policies and compliance.
Mr. Butler teaches courses as an adjunct professor at Mississippi College School of Law and is the immediate past Chairman of the Mississippi Bar’s Appellate Practice Section. He is a member of the Federalist Society and a past editor-in-chief of the Mississippi Defense Lawyers’ Association’s quarterly magazine.
