Roland M. Juarez
Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP
Roland Juarez is known for handling high-stakes labor and employment cases for some of California’s largest and most high-profile employers in the service, manufacturing, retail and aerospace industries, successfully defending clients against the most challenging wage and hour, discrimination and non-compete claims facing employers.
Juarez’s innovative courtroom strategies have secured impressive victories for his clients, ranging from using creative arguments concerning jurisdiction to substantially limit client exposure in a matter concerning a California military base; protecting a client’s competitive advantage by applying California’s “trade secret exception” for a manufacturer of well-known personal hygiene products; and repeatedly finding breakthroughs in multiple arbitration wins for a California aerospace giant, including two that went through a full arbitration hearing. With the pandemic, Juarez has taken on emergent novel questions on compensable time brought about by new procedures.
