Alejandro Pérez

Biography

Alejandro Pérez is an associate in the Phoenix, Arizona, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. His practice is devoted to representing management in a wide array of workplace law matters, from prevention and compliance issues to litigation.

In his litigation practice, Alejandro defends employers in state and federal courts against discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and wrongful termination, and other claims arising out of the employment relationship. He also represents employers in disputes involving restrictive covenants, non-compete agreements, and employment agreements. Additionally, Alejandro assists employers in resolving administrative matters before various state and federal government agencies. 

Prior to attending law school, Alejandro worked as a human-resources professional. Alejandro leverages his pre-law experiences to provide his clients with pragmatic solutions that are both creative and proactive. Alejandro relishes learning his clients’ businesses and works closely with them to create HR policies and best practices that minimize risk, increase employee job satisfaction, and support diversity and inclusion.

Alejandro also counsels clients and conducts management and employment training on a myriad of labor and employment law topics, diversity and inclusion, LGBTQ+ workplace issues, and the creation of respectful workplace norms. Additionally, Alejandro devotes time to conducting sensitive workplace investigations regarding sexual harassment, discrimination, whistleblower allegations, and other employment claims.

A native Spanish speaker, Alejandro’s clients benefit from his ability to communicate fluently with their Spanish-speaking workforces and accurately translate key employment documents and policies.
