Speaker:  Brooke Purcell, Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP

Brooke Purcell is an associate in the Labor and Employment Practice Group at Sheppard Mullin's San Francisco office.

Ms. Purcell takes a pragmatic approach to litigation that balances the need for a strong defense with business realities.

Her practice focuses on defending employers in federal and state courts and before administrative agencies against claims of wage and hour violations, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination.

She also represents employers in wage and hour class actions and PAGA claims. Her clients range from small businesses to publicly traded companies, with a focus on technology, retail, and hospitality industries. In addition to her litigation practice, Ms. Purcell frequently provides guidance and training to companies to maintain compliance with federal, state, and municipal laws and regulations.

Prior to law school, Ms. Purcell worked as a Legislative Assistant in the United States Senate and as a Professional Staff on the United States Senate Commerce Committee.
