Chris Johnson defends both local and national employers in litigation and administrative proceedings against all claims arising from the employment relationship.
Chris also focuses a significant portion of his practice on litigation prevention efforts including the review and revision or personnel policies and procedures to ensure compliance with evolving labor and employment laws. He understands where an employer is most vulnerable and works with his clients to eliminate those vulnerabilities. However, when an employee does bring a claim, Chris is prepared to defend the procedures and policies that he works to create with his clients, as he has extensive experience litigating cases in state and federal courts throughout the United States in both single plaintiff matters as well as class and collective actions.
Prior to joining FordHarrison, Chris was a partner at a labor and employment boutique firm in Tampa. While earning his J.D. from the University of Florida, Chris completed a judicial externship for the Honorable Don F. Briggs and the Honorable T.
