Ms. Morgan represents private and public employers in all aspects of employment law, with an emphasis on defending “high stakes” class actions and other complex litigation.

In particular, she has significant experience partnering with employers who seek to design improved and compliant personnel processes through a transition to new or upgraded workforce-related software and technologies. Ms. Morgan’s practice also includes a special focus on the development and analysis of statistics used both in case defense and to conduct preventative, privileged diagnostic reviews of employers’ personnel practices.
