Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is pleased to announce that partner Amber M. Rogers was named to Law360’s Employment Rising Stars for 2021, an annual compilation of lawyers under the age of 40 whose legal accomplishments transcend their age. Of the 1,400 applicants, winners were selected based on their career accomplishments in their respective disciplines.
As the hiring partner of Hunton Andrews Kurth’s Dallas office, Rogers assists clients with traditional labor relations and litigation, conducting sensitive workplace investigations, employment advice and counseling, and complex employment litigation. Her litigation experience also includes regularly representing clients in wage and hour collective and class actions, trade secrets and post-employment restrictive covenant disputes, and complex employment discrimination. Recently, she received a unanimous decision from the Fifth Circuit overturning two National Labor Relations Board’s decisions for a Texas based nuclear plant, the largest in the state, and represented Texas’ largest transmission and distribution electric utility during its union representation election.
Additionally, Rogers is a leader and promoter of diversity in the firm and the legal community, having co-founded The NEW (Network of Empowered Women) Roundtable to focus on influencing, empowering, and impacting members’ careers of African-American women attorneys, and acting as co-chair of the Dallas office diversity committee and of the firm’s Diversity Oneness Luncheon series, which is a quarterly gathering for the firm’s racial and ethnic minority attorneys.
