Partner; Co-Chair, Labor & Employment;
Co-Chair, Diversity & Inclusion

Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP

Emily Burkhardt Vicente is co-chair of the firm’s national labor and employment team and diversity and inclusion committee.  Vicente was selected as co-chair of the national labor and employment practice of an American Lawyer 100 firm after only eight years as a partner.  This is no small feat and a testament to her leadership abilities.  

Vicente has defended some of the largest Fortune 100 companies in high-stakes employment litigation and is one of few lawyers to take hybrid class and collective action cases to jury trial.  She has helped clients navigate sexual harassment claims fraught with legal and public relations challenges in the #metoo era, equal pay challenges, implementation of AI and emerging technologies in the workplace, and most recently COVID-19 related employment issues.  She has helped Fortune 100 companies develop and implement ESG programs around diversity and inclusion that balance legal, business and social interests.
