Biography

David E. Nagle is a Principal in the Richmond, Virginia, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. He is frequently called upon to counsel and represent employers with respect to a wide range of issues arising in the workplace, including claims based on allegations of employment discrimination, wage payment disputes, wrongful discharge, breach of contract, and various other statutory, contract and tort claims.

Mr. Nagle has considerable experience in trial and appellate courts enforcing arbitration agreements, including his successful argument on behalf of the employer in Circuit City Stores v. Adams, 532 U.S. 105 (2001), in which the Court held that the Federal Arbitration Act requires judicial enforcement of agreements to arbitrate workplace disputes. His practice also includes traditional labor law matters, where he assists employers with union avoidance, collective bargaining, unfair labor practice charges, and labor disputes. He is a member of the Panel of Arbitrators of the American Arbitration Association.

Much of Mr. Nagle’s time is devoted to counseling employers with respect to personnel policies and practices, in an effort to ensure awareness of and compliance with applicable employment laws, in order to avoid the disruption, expense and uncertainty of litigation.

Mr. Nagle is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Virginia School of Law and was a Visiting Lecturer at University College Dublin. He has been a guest instructor at several universities, including VCU Schools of Business and Health Administration; University of Richmond Schools of Law and Business; and Virginia Tech School of Business. Mr. Nagle has given approximately 350 presentations to academic, professional, business, and trade groups.
