Epstein Becker Green Adds Experienced Employment Attorney Garen E. Dodge in Washington, DC

Washington, DC (November 4, 2019) Epstein Becker Green (EBG) is pleased to announce that labor and employment attorney Garen E. Dodge has joined the firm in Washington, DC. Prior to joining EBG, Mr. Dodge practiced at Sheppard Mullin.

Mr. Dodge’s diverse practice covers the spectrum of labor and employment litigation. His clients include employers from a broad range of industries—including communications, education, food and beverage, hospitality, retail, and transportation, among others—as well as those that do business with federal, state, and local government agencies.

“Garen is a well-known and respected employment litigator and a great addition to our Washington, DC, team,” said David W. Garland, Chair of the firm’s National Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Steering Committee. “Adding talented lawyers to our super-boutique practice, which focuses exclusively on workforce management issues, continues to be our strategy, and we are very pleased to welcome Garen to the firm.”

A few of Mr. Dodge’s recent victories include serving as lead counsel in a jury trial alleging defamation in a circuit court in Fairfax, Virginia; obtaining an injunction in DC federal court in a non-compete case; and prevailing in a five-day arbitration involving allegations of age and national origin discrimination. Throughout his career, he has served as counsel of record in seminal U.S. Supreme Court and appellate cases as Amicus Curiae. In addition, he has testified before agencies such as the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

“The opportunity to join EBG’s well-respected labor and employment practice and to work with the excellent lawyers throughout the firm’s national offices is exciting,” said Mr. Dodge. “The firm’s collaborative culture and commitment to client service align with my values, and I look forward to contributing to the firm’s success.”

Earlier in his career, Mr. Dodge served as an Attorney-Advisor for the Benefits Review Board of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of the Secretary. Mr. Dodge is a frequent speaker before industry and other groups on employment topics. He is the author of many publications, including the book Winning the War on Drugs: The Role of Workplace Drug Testing. He is also an Adjunct Professor at The George Washington University School of Business.
