Alex Meier works in Seyfarth's Labor and Employment Group. His practice includes the full array of federal remedial rights, non-compete and trade secret litigation, Fair Credit Reporting Act class actions, and workplace safety and health disputes. Mr. Meier has spearheaded multiple initiatives to promote conscious improvements to case management tools and client-facing resources, including document automation tools, operational summaries, and existing resource identification.

Since joining Seyfarth, some of his favorite cases and results for clients include the following:

Trade Secret/Non-Compete

  • Halfway through trial, obtained a $2mm settlement for a Fortune 500 company. Defendants’ last offer before trial was $200,000. In a poll of the jurors post settlement, the jury told the Seyfarth team that they were ready to find in our client’s favor after the first full day of testimony.
  • Secured a reversal in an appeal of a declaratory judgment invalidating our client’s non-recruitment restrictive covenant. The opinion, which was selected for publication, resolved two divergent lines of cases and fully adopted our position.
  • Assisted Seyfarth team in obtaining nationwide preliminary injunction against former employees located in California.

Workplace Safety and Health (OSHA)

  • After a full administrative hearing, an administrative law judge completely dismissed citation involving scope of host employers in multi-employer worksites. The result provided our client, a staffing company, with an excellent resource to push back against regulatory overextension.

Class Actions and Single-Plaintiff Cases

  • A plaintiff sought to introduce previously undisclosed, significant evidence on summary judgment. We successfully excluded the new evidence and obtained summary judgment on all claims.
  • Assisted Seyfarth team in converting several class actions into individual settlements before discovery or early in discovery, avoiding substantial costs to our client.

Prior to joining Seyfarth, Mr. Meier served as a law clerk for the Honorable William C. O'Kelley, Senior United States District Judge for the Northern District of Georgia. During his time as a clerk, he worked on a wide range of cases at the pre-trial, discovery, summary judgment, trial, and post-judgment stages of litigation. Mr. Meier also worked as an extern at the Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Reorganization. The Division monitors the issuance of securities in bankruptcy and assists the Division of Enforcement in cases involving bankrupt or insolvent defendants.
