Barnes & Thornburg Adds Labor & Employment Litigator in Atlanta

June 29, 2021 Atlanta

ATLANTA – Barnes & Thornburg has added Raanon Gal as partner in the firm’s Labor and Employment Department in Atlanta. Gal’s move follows on the heels of the Austin Bersinger addition to the Atlanta office in April. 

Gal represents employers in a range of industries, including airline, manufacturing and retail, in matters involving wage and hour, wrongful termination litigation, discrimination, harassment, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and employment practice liability insurance arrangements. Also a litigator, Gal has handled cases involving the misappropriation of trade secrets, noncompete agreements, and employment/business torts in front of federal courts, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and district courts across Georgia. Additionally, Gal provides proactive risk management counsel to clients, and has drafted numerous employee handbooks, executive employment agreements, and employer policies. 

“Raanon is a versatile employment counselor and litigator. His range includes FMLA claims, which have been top of mind throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as employers continue to update their procedures and policies,” said Kenneth Yerkes, Labor and Employment Chair. “Raanon can defend clients on a wide range of matters while mitigating the risks they face to prevent future litigation.” 

Gal is a thought leader in the Georgia market and also lectures on matters such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, FMLA, sexual harassment avoidance, and record retention requirements.

“Raanon’s knowledge and experience are a great advantage for his clients,” said John T.L. Koenig, Atlanta office managing partner. “He is a trusted counselor in the employment law space and adds another talented attorney to our growing Atlanta office.”

Gal earned his J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School and his B.A. from the University of Florida.

With more than 700 attorneys and other legal professionals, Barnes & Thornburg is one of the largest law firms in the country. The firm serves clients worldwide from offices in Atlanta, Boston, California, Chicago, Delaware, Indiana, Michigan, Minneapolis, New York, Ohio, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, Texas and Washington, D.C.
