“Taylor English Nabs Veteran Employment Atty From Akerman,” Law360
On August 8, 2020, in an article published by Law360, Peter Spanos discusses his addition to Taylor English, where he joins the labor and employment practice. He explained that his main goal is to grow the firm’s practice in traditional labor law, such as collective bargaining, union organizing, elections, grievances and strikes, as well as advance the firm's nonprofit practice with his experience helping large charitable organizations.
Spanos said the firm offers his clients better value through its unique structure, which allows attorneys flexibility in managing their own practice for their clients' needs. "I came to realize that, both in the short run, as a result of the current economic circumstances, and in the long run, that the Taylor English model was a better model for the client and for attorneys than the traditional large firm structure, which I have a lot of experience with," explained Spanos. "When I indicated to my clients that I was planning to move to Taylor English, they were of course supportive, they've followed me to a lot of different firms. But when they learned about the value that they receive at Taylor English, they were ecstatic."
Spanos has been practicing labor and employment law in Atlanta since 1976, when he received his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. He said he fell into labor and employment law because no one else at his first firm was doing it. He originally wanted to do litigation but found that after a while it didn't excite him as much.
"Peter is an exceptional labor and employment attorney and self-starter whose practice aligns perfectly with Taylor English," said Joe English. "His range of experience and striking collection of credentials and successful outcomes allows him to offer clients a wide range of options and solutions on their most critical legal matters. Peter is an outstanding addition for our clients and firm. We are thrilled to welcome him."
Spanos said he was glad to find many friends at Taylor English, including six partners he used to work with at four other firms, including two firms of his own. "Sometimes you realize that a greater opportunity exists, even though you're just fine where you are," said Spanos.
