Biography

Tony H. McGrath is a Principal in the Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, offices of Jackson Lewis P.C. He is the Office Litigation Manager.

His practice focuses on representing employers in litigation, including defending class and collective actions.

Employers rarely want to go to court. When they must do so, however, Mr. McGrath aggressively defends their interests while proactively managing the case to provide creative strategies and options for attaining the employer’s goals. 

A significant portion of Mr. McGrath’s practice is focused on defending complex class and collective actions, including nationwide cases arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Mr. McGrath has represented employers in class and collective actions in Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, and Wisconsin, among other venues. He has helped employers streamline litigation by consolidating duplicative cases, minimize exposure by successfully opposing conditional and final class certification, obtain favorable resolutions by negotiating complex settlement agreements, and win cases on summary judgment.

Mr. McGrath also regularly handles single plaintiff and multi-party litigation under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as well as state non-discrimination and anti-harassment laws. He has extensive experience handling cases in the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Wisconsin Equal Rights Division, and other governmental agencies. In addition, Mr. McGrath frequently litigates cases involving non-competition agreements and other restrictive covenants.

Prior to joining Jackson Lewis, Mr. McGrath was a partner at a national labor and employment law firm.
