Adam J. Walker
Adam Walker is an Associate in the firm’s Employment & Labor group. Adam’s practice spans both private and public sectors and primarily involves counseling on employment practices and policies, traditional labor, and employment litigation.
Adam’s employment practice covers a broad array of topics—including FMLA/ADA compliance, workplace policies, employment agreements, severance agreements, wage and hour issues, investigations, discrimination, and other typical employment issues—for private and public sector employers. He understands that each employer and workplace is unique, with different goals that require tailored solutions. And, because employers are busy and hardworking, with little time to waste deciphering legal minutiae, Adam ensures clients receive top notch legal services in an easy to understand way.
Adam handles traditional labor work in both the private and public sectors. His areas of expertise include collective bargaining, labor arbitration, unfair labor practice procedures, and more.

He coordinates with clients to implement litigation strategies that serve their goals. Adam has a proven track record of obtaining dismissals and favorable settlements for employers, which allows them to get back to doing what they do best—running their normal business operations.
Adam has litigated a wide range of employment claims in Michigan’s state and federal courts, including discrimination and harassment, defamation, breach of contract, and First Amendment and other constitutional issues. He also routinely walks employers through administrative matters with the EEOC and MDCR.
