Meet Our Dedicated Team

With four dedicated attorneys handling WARN Act cases, Outten & Golden's WARN Act practice group stands out in the top tier, in the eyes of the profession. Our WARN Act Practice Group was named by Law360 as 2017 Bankruptcy Practice Group of the Year.

Our WARN Practice Group attorneys have over 40 years of collective experience representing employees terminated in the wake of company mass layoffs and shutdowns. We have litigated on behalf of tens of thousands of workers in various industries all over the country. Our team has repeatedly been recognized by Courts as the best able to represent large groups of employees in cases involving mass layoffs and shutdowns and has often selected Outten & Golden over other law firms seeking to represent employees in class actions.

Our WARN Practice Group attorneys are supported by a team of dedicated WARN Act paralegals who provide important service and assistance to displaced workers who need our help. This combination of experience and resources gives you an edge when you seek assistance, advice and representation if you are affected by a large layoff or shutdown.

René Roupinian and Jack Raisner, co-chairs of the WARN Practice Group, are nationally-recognized leaders in the area of WARN litigation. Together, they have spearheaded dozens of cases to completion, obtaining outstanding results for workers. Gail Lin and Robert Fisher, the other two attorneys of the WARN Practice Group, also have years of experience litigating WARN cases in courts all over the country, with proven success for their clients. From the initial consultation to the end of the case, these four attorneys make up one of the country's most successful WARN Act litigation teams. They are knowledgeable, experienced, hands-on attorneys who zealously advocate for workers.

Jack, René and Robert work in New York. Gail works in California and is licensed to practice in California, New York and New Jersey; and Robert is licensed in Florida, New York and California.

Our WARN Act professionals also work hand-in-hand with other attorneys across Outten & Golden's four offices in Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., as well as local attorneys in states where we litigate.

Outten & Golden is the largest law firm in the United States that exclusively represents employees and executives. As advocates for workplace fairness, our passion and our profession is to help employees and protect their rights against injustices in the workplace.

Our lawyers are recognized as some of the most qualified and highly skilled in the field of employment law.
