Amy L. Kullik

It’s important not only to advise on the ‘law’ but also to take into account the business needs of the client, their industry environment, and other factors that impact decision-making. That helps us develop solutions that make sense not just legally, but also for that particular client’s business.

In addition to a successful general litigation practice, Ms. Kullik has administrative and litigation experience in all aspects of public and private sector labor and employment law. She counsels employers on litigation prevention, human resource management, health and safety issues, and proactive compliance strategies for federal and state laws. She develops and conducts training and compliance seminars for employers, managers, supervisors and employees and defends employers in cases involving allegations of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation and wrongful discharge, as well as wage and hour disputes.

She is currently admitted in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of OhioU.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.  Amy frequently lectures on employment law and mentors law students and new lawyers.
