Profile Introduction

Colin represents public-sector and private employers in a broad range of labor and employment matters, with an emphasis on traditional labor law, labor relations, and issues arising under the Railway Labor Act.


Colin understands the demands of a rapidly changing workforce and helps employers craft and negotiate pragmatic solutions, whether negotiating collective bargaining agreements, representing management in grievance and arbitration proceedings, or litigating claims of unfair labor practices. His counsel is practical, tailored to achieve client goals, and focused on providing cost-effective service.


In addition to his labor-relations counsel, Colin advises clients on employment matters and related compliance issues, including hiring, discipline and discharge processes; wage and hour disputes; issues regarding the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other laws and regulations; and claims of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Drawing on his extensive litigation experience, he regularly negotiates out-of-court settlements, represents employers in mediation and arbitration, appears before boards of adjustment on behalf of covered carriers, and provides a strong defense of clients in federal and state courts.
