Date   Jan 9, 2017

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country’s largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that Jeffrey D. Mokotoff has rejoined the firm’s Atlanta office as partner. Jeff has a broad employment law practice and routinely counsels clients on a myriad of employment issues, drafts and reviews employment, arbitration and noncompete agreements, conducts management training, and litigates and tries employment cases, both in court and in arbitration.

“We are glad to have Jeff back at FordHarrison,” said Lash Harrison, Managing Partner of FordHarrison. “The experience he gained from his time away from the firm will prove to be beneficial to our clients.”

Before rejoining FordHarrison, after a 16-year career with the firm from 1996-2012, Jeff held the position of Chief Administrative Officer and Counsel for Turner Enterprises, Inc. (TEI), Ted Turner’s private company that oversees all of Mr. Turner’s business interests. As Chief Administrative Officer, Jeff managed and oversaw all legal, administrative and employment aspects of Mr. Turner’s business interests, to include over 2,000,000 acres of land, numerous bison ranches and several hospitality venues. In 2015, Jeff founded and developed Ted Turner Expeditions, a hospitality company that affords the public an opportunity to visit and explore over 1,000,000 acres of Mr. Turner's landholdings. While at TEI, Jeff also served as employment counsel for Ted’s Montana Grill, a restaurant chain owned by Mr. Turner with 46 restaurants in 18 different states.

Jeff has extensive experience in representing clients concerning cases involving non-compete agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets, employment/business torts, and wage and hour litigation.
