Spencer Phillips specializes in handling employment law matters brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs).
He investigates charge allegations, identifies and evaluates pertinent documents, and provides clients an assessment of the risks associated with the charge. Then he defends the charge by drafting persuasive position statements and responses to the agency’s requests for information.
In addition, Mr. Phillips engages in strategic settlement discussions, either through formal mediation processes or informal discussions with mediators, investigators or counsel. Where appropriate, he prepares witnesses for fact-finding conferences and represents clients during on-site agency investigations.
