Established in 2005, the Client Choice awards recognize law firms and attorneys around the world that stand apart for the excellent client service they provide.

Baldwin has been practicing law for almost 30 years. He devotes his practice to representing employers in lawsuits involving EEO claims, labor arbitrations, NLRB proceedings, wage and hour disputes, union avoidance, employment contracts, non-competition/trade secret disputes, and class and collective action litigation. He frequently consults with and trains employers on employment practices and policies, union avoidance, protection of trade secrets and litigation avoidance. In his litigation practice, Baldwin has served as lead counsel in defending employers at trial and on appeal in class actions, multi-plaintiff, and individual lawsuits arising out of every conceivable type of workplace dispute.

Earlier this month, Mr. Baldwin was selected as a 2013 Client Service All-Star by the BTI Consulting Group. He has been named as one of the top labor and employment lawyers in Indiana by Chambers USA, Leading Business Lawyers in the USA (2004 to present), and has been included in Indiana Super Lawyers (2004 to present), the Best Lawyers in America (2007 to present), and The International Who’s Who of Management Labour & Employment Lawyers (2010).
