Julie A. Springer

Julie Springer maintains a national trial practice, representing clients in all types of employment and business-related disputes in federal and state courts and regulatory agencies throughout Texas and the United States. Julie offers extensive litigation expertise in a broad range of matters, including lawsuits involving claims of discrimination, harassment and other traditional employment claims, both on an individual and class-wide basis; defense of national wage and hour collective and class actions under both federal and state law; and business disputes involving claims of breach of contract, breach of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and misappropriation of trade secret claims.

In addition, Julie regularly counsels corporate and individual clients on all facets of the employer-employee relationship, including negotiating the various agreements that govern the employment relationship such as executive compensation agreements and separation agreements. Formerly a partner with the Austin firm of Scott, Douglass & McConnico, Julie has tried numerous jury and non-jury trials to verdict and is one of the few attorneys in the state who is Board Certified in both Labor & Employment Law and Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
