Courtney handles a diverse range of labor and employment matters with a primary focus on defending clients in single-plaintiff and class action litigation. She represents clients in complex wage and hour class action and PAGA lawsuits, as well as in actions brought under Title VII and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), including claims for harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination. She has represented clients in a variety of different matters in state and federal court, as well as numerous administrative agencies. Courtney has successfully defeated class certification, won motions to dismiss, negotiated favorable settlements, and handled numerous appeals.

Courtney’s background in labor relations has also made her a go-to associate for union-related matters. She assists in collective bargaining negotiations, unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and California’s Public Employment Relations Board (PERB), labor arbitration, and counsels clients on labor issues. Courtney also has specific experience dealing with litigation matters in the context of a union-represented workforce.

In addition to her litigation and labor experience, Courtney regularly advises clients on employment issues, including developing and maintaining workplace policies, employee discipline and performance issues, disability accommodation, and various wage and hour issues. Courtney works closely with company leaders, human resources and operations partners, and in-house legal departments from employers of all sizes.

During law school, Courtney interned at the NLRB Region 2 as well as interned as a judicial intern at the NLRB Division of Judges, New York City. Before law school, she worked management-side as a labor relations associate for an aircraft manufacturer where she handled and worked on various union-management matters, including enforcement of collective bargaining agreements, union grievances, and contract negotiations. Courtney was extended an offer to join Littler as an associate during her third year in law school and, following graduation, began her legal career in Littler’s San Francisco office, where she has remained since starting in 2016.

Courtney also strives to devote time to pro bono efforts.
