His notable successes include cases enforcing arbitration agreements, delineating minimum pleading standards for overtime claims, enforcing the theory of inevitable disclosure to prevent a competitor from hiring a former employee; obtaining summary judgment in a nation-wide misclassification class action; and obtaining judgment on the pleadings sustaining the outside sales exemption.
