LOS ANGELES—Ropers Majeski, a multi-service law firm offering litigation and transactional services nationally and internationally, announces that it has elevated three attorneys to partner – Spiros E. Fousekis in Redwood City and Alan J. Hart and German A. Marcucci in Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled by their continued professional development and congratulate this trio of litigators on the next step in their careers,” said Chairman Michael Ioannou. “Spiros, Alan and German are trusted resources, leaders and collaborators among their colleagues, and their shared commitment to exceptional client service is among the many reasons they are integral members of our firm.”
Fousekis, previously of counsel, practices in the Business and Commercial Litigation, Employment Law and Corporate Law practice areas. He works closely with employers, tackling labor and employment law issues such as harassment, discrimination and retaliation under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA); wrongful termination, wage and hour matters; meal and rest period disputes; whistleblower retaliation claims; the California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA); and employee/independent contractor classification disputes. In addition to litigating before state and federal courts, Fousekis regularly represents his clients – stemming from industries including technology, biotech, retail, manufacturing, construction and commercial real estate – at administrative proceedings before the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). He also provides a range of strategic workplace compliance counseling and assists on complex issues such as executive separation.
Hart, previously an associate, is in the firm’s Business and Commercial Litigation and Intellectual Property Law practices. He represents and advises clients in commercial litigation and intellectual property matters involving issues including defense of business torts, contract disputes, false advertising, defamation, construction, products liability, trademark and patent litigation, labor disputes and insurance.
Marcucci, previously of counsel, practices in the Business and Commercial Litigation, Employment Law and Insurance Services areas. He regularly handles litigation involving personal injury and property damage claims occurring in commercial settings, including in relation to premises design and conditions, fire suppression systems and private security personnel.
