Baker Donelson Continues to Expand Baltimore Team with Addition of Louis Cannon as Shareholder

Baker Donelson, a national law firm with more than 650 attorneys and public policy advisors, today announced that Louis J. Cannon Jr. has joined the Firm's Baltimore office as shareholder.

Focusing his practice on traditional labor matters, Mr. Cannon represents public sector entities and private businesses across diverse industries, such as health care, hospitality, higher education, retail, manufacturing, and distribution. With more than 15 years of experience, he works closely with clients to ensure labor and employment law compliance and avoid workplace disputes in a manner that is least disruptive to the organization's business goals.

Mr. Cannon brings deep experience in leading union negotiations, advising clients with respect to administration of labor agreements, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) litigation, and NLRB election campaigns. He also regularly assists companies in putting together positive employee programs in industries that are vulnerable to union organizing. His experience and in-depth knowledge of collective bargaining and traditional labor law make him a trusted resource for businesses and governmental bodies with union-represented employees, and he has successfully negotiated numerous labor agreements, including many initial contracts, for a wide range of organizations, such as hospitals, hotels, construction employers, distributors, major universities, and government entities.

"As we continue to grow our Baltimore team, we're thrilled to welcome someone of Louis's caliber to our Labor & Employment practice," said Jennifer L. Curry, managing shareholder of Baker Donelson's Baltimore office. "He brings an in-depth understanding of labor and employment law, as well as an entrepreneurial spirit that will greatly enhance our ability to not only meet, but exceed, our clients' needs."

In addition to traditional labor matters, Mr. Cannon offers general advice and counsel on employment matters, such as investigating and responding to EEOC charges and discrimination charges filed with state human relations agencies. He has represented clients in Title VII and wage and hour cases in federal and state courts, as well as in on-site investigations conducted by the DOL and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

Mr. Cannon, who most recently was principal at Jackson Lewis P.C., received his J.D. from University of Maryland School of Law and his B.A. from the University of Maryland.
