Contact William

Will counsels and defends employers in a range of business and employment-related matters. A large portion of Will’s practice is devoted to litigation, including working with employers facing class actions and other complex litigation.

Though most frequently handling defense of wage and hour claims, his experience includes matters involving claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Will also helps clients navigate day-to-day challenges in the workplace through advice and counseling, trainings, audits, assessments, and investigations, often advising on independent contractor relationships, employee classification, and regular rate of pay calculations. In each instance, he works diligently to understand a client’s operational and business needs.

Will graduated cum laude from Mercer University School of Law and was Editor in Chief of the Mercer Law Review. Will received his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia where he was selected for UGA’s Congressional Agricultural Fellowship program, working on legislative issues for one of Georgia’s representatives to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Prior to attending law school, Will worked as a corporate compliance professional for a publically-traded manufacturing company where he closely worked with corporate and outside counsel to coordinate and grow the company’s compliance program and conduct internal investigations.
