Labor and employment

Atlanta-based Lawrence & Bundy is a boutique exclusively focused on litigation. The firm maintains exceptional expertise in a wide range of disputes, from commercial to labor and employment litigation. The lawyers practicing in labor and employment are routinely retained to represent cities and counties in Georgia as well as Fortune 100 companies.

Allegra Lawrence-Hardy is recognized for her noteworthy work in labor and employment, crisis management, business and commercial claims. Her expertise ranges from trials and arbitrations to highly sensitive internal investigations, especially those involving race and gender discrimination. Recently her practice has included several matters on behalf of local public entities.  Lawrence-Hardy was retained by the city of Atlanta to represent it against a former office of the Atlanta Police Department who filed a petition of mandamus seeking to receive numerous benefits of employment after he was terminated and charged with felony murder for his role in the death of Rayshard Brooks. The matter garnered significant media and public attention and it was eventually voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff.

Lawrence-Hardy is currently engaged in a case representing Dekalb County against a former employee who alleges they were demoted and terminated in retaliation. The lawsuit was filed under the Georgia Whistleblower Act and Title VII. The plaintiff is seeking monetary damages and equitable relief. Lawrence-Hardy has been defending the client through all stages of litigation and she is preparing for trial in the Northern District of Georgia.
