Brooks R. Amiot Appointed Jackson Lewis' Baltimore Office Managing Principal

BALTIMORE, MD (January 23, 2017) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce that Brooks R. Amiot has been appointed Baltimore Office Managing Principal. Mr. Amiot succeeds Joy Napier-Joyce, who stepped down from the management role to focus her attention on overseeing the continued growth and expansion of the firm’s Employee Benefits Practice Group.

“Since joining Jackson Lewis in 2010, Brooks continuously has raised the bar in providing premier legal service to our client roster,” said Firm Chairman Vincent A. Cino. “His breadth of experience as an employment litigator and counselor, combined with his strong ties to the Baltimore legal and business community, made him an excellent choice to lead the office in its future growth.”

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to build upon the solid foundation that exists in our Baltimore office,” said Mr. Amiot. “Joy’s strong leadership skills helped us attract and retain high-quality laterals and develop innovative ways to provide superior client service, and I intend to continue those efforts and to expand the office with a focus on our key practice areas and industries.

Mr. Amiot regularly defends clients in employment-related litigation, including wage and hour disputes, employment discrimination and sexual harassment suits, whistleblower claims, ADA and FMLA litigation, wrongful discharge suits, and administrative charges across the country.  He has extensive experience in every phase of litigation, from discovery to trial to appeal.  Mr. Amiot is well known for his success rate in the early stages of lawsuits through dispositive motions, rendering his clients devoid of liability and saving them significant fees and costs.

An A.V. rated attorney, Mr. Amiot also has been recognized as one of “America’s Leading Labor and Employment Lawyers” in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, which describes him as a "top-notch attorney," and he is listed in Best Lawyers in America.

Mr. Amiot received his B.A. from the University of Utah and his J.D. from The George Washington University Law School.
