Mary Wright advises employers from startups to global corporations on all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, including workplace investigations, competition and confidentiality, employee classification issues, and employee terminations, including reductions in force. She served as Chair of her former firm’s Personnel Committee for seven years, during which time she learned to see employment issues as an employer and developed a very practical approach to advice and counsel. She specializes in working with employers to identify compliance issues early on and reach workable business solutions to complex human resource problems. Wright represents corporations before federal and state agencies, and defends employers in all types of employment litigation matters before state and federal courts involving discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge and other employment-related claims. She has extensive experience defending employers against claims of disability, sex, race, national origin and age discrimination, and against claims of violation of federal and state medical and disability leave of absence laws. She served as both a Judge in Small Claims Court and Mediator for employment cases in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Wright is also the published author of “Aunt Eleanor’s ‘Never Fail’ Pie Crust and Classic Pie Recipes,” a cookbook dedicated solely to resurrecting the lost art of baking pies from scratch.
