Cameron W. Ellis

Of Counsel   |   Atlanta

Cam’s practice focuses on representing and counseling federal contractors. In particular, Cam represents employers nationwide in matters involving the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.

Having practiced in both the private and federal government sectors for over a decade, Cam’s experience gives him a unique perspective in representing clients. He is particularly adept in advising on compliance with non-discrimination laws, federal government investigations, systemic discrimination claims, compliance with federal contractors’ affirmative action and non-discrimination obligations, pay equity, and DE&I strategies.

Just before joining Ogletree Deakins, Cam was a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Labor.  In that role, he advised DOL agencies on a wide range of regulatory, employment, and enforcement issues. Cam litigated dozens of matters in federal courts and administrative venues on behalf of DOL agencies, including OFCCP, OSHA, the Wage and Hour Division, and the Employee Benefits Security Administration.  Cam also defended discrimination claims against DOL agencies and advised on pending OFCCP and other agency investigations.

Prior to his employment with the government, Cam litigated scores of business and employment litigation matters on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants. After law school, Cam clerked for U.S. District Court Judge L. Scott Coogler in the Northern District of Alabama and for Judge Eric G. Bruggink of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
