Date   Nov 14, 2019

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country’s largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce Cory J. King joins as Partner. Cory comes to FordHarrison from Fine, Boggs & Perkins LLP.

“Cory is an accomplished attorney who understands his clients’ needs and provides excellent service,” said Al McKenna, FordHarrison Managing Partner. “California is an exciting growth market for the firm, and Cory is a big part of our plan to support and continue that growth.”

Cory is a seasoned litigator representing employers in private arbitration and litigation claims before state and federal courts, as well as administrative proceedings before state and federal agencies. His extensive litigation experience includes developing creative and efficient approaches to defending wage/hour (including class action and PAGA claims), harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, whistleblower, breach of contract, unfair competition, and trade secret disputes.

Cory also provides employers with day-to-day advice regarding the formulation and implementation of sound employment practices that reduce the threat of employment litigation, in the areas of wage/hour compliance, hiring, discipline and termination, employment agreements, employee handbooks, policies and procedures, leaves of absence, management training, trade secret protection, and general employment advice. He represents employers in many different industries, but his unique experience and history in the automotive industry makes him particularly adept at advising automotive employers regarding customized compensation programs to navigate and comply with California's complex wage/hour laws.

“I am excited to be a part of FordHarrison’s continuing expansion in California,” said Cory. “I am thrilled to start this new journey in San Diego building on FordHarrison’s reputation and global platform.”
