Griffin advises on and represents clients in labor and employment matters.

Griffin’s interest in the employment world dates to his teen years, when a series of family moves meant he held several jobs in quick succession. The comparisons and contrasts left him fascinated by the differing ways workplaces function, and his interest only increased when an undergraduate position found him working in one of his university’s human resources offices. Griffin sees the health of the workplace as an integral part of a business’s performance, and he is driven to help clients foster cultures that lead to success.

At Husch Blackwell, Griffin offers both employment litigation defense and preventative counsel. He defends clients in court and through mediation, and he works with them to anticipate future problems and prevent lawsuits. Prior to joining the firm, Griffin served as a summer associate, cutting his teeth on a variety of labor and employment matters, including retaliation claims, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) claims, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII requirements, and Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.

Griffin is known for his strong research and writing skills and his desire to help clients create thriving workplaces. Adaptable, available and flexible, he’s ready to help clients find answers to any situation.
