About Christopher

Christopher M. Robertson focuses his practice on counseling and representing management on a variety of labor and employment issues under California and federal law.

Robertson defends employers in class action lawsuits arising in state and federal courts involving alleged violations of California wage and hour law and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  He assists clients in formulating successful strategies for opposing class certification, coordinating duplicative cases, and resolving purported class action litigation.  Robertson has defeated class certification in cases involving exempt and nonexempt employees.
