One of the greatest strengths of our firm is accountability. The way we are built drives us all to be accountable to ourselves, each other, and more importantly each and every client. 

Glianny Fagundo prides herself in partnering with clients to design and implement workplace policies and practices that are not just compliant with the law, but that further business goals and protect a company’s culture. Her years as a high-stakes employment and business litigator gave her a full appreciation of the value, and cost, of human capital. As a result, her employment law counsel and advice is carefully designed to maximize returns and decrease risks. Ms. Fagundo routinely counsels national employers on a multitude of workplace issues, including wage and hour, worker classification, joint employer/single enterprise, religious and disability accommodations, discipline, terminations, RIF’s, executive employment agreements, and background checks. She also continues to defend companies in high-stakes cases including claims for restrictive covenants violations, discrimination, collective FLSA/wage, contractual breaches, fraud, consumer disputes, professional liability and products liability. Some of the industries in which Ms. Fagundo has considerable experience include healthcare, restaurants and hospitality, retail, professional services, transportation and logistics, and media/entertainment. Ms. Fagundo's engaging personality and natural public speaking knack have resulted in numerous invitations to address and train management and trade groups on policies and legal developments.

In addition to practicing law, Ms. Fagundo is considered a business and community leader in the state of Georgia. Ms. Fagundo was one of the forces behind the incorporation of the City of Brookhaven and has worked with a multitude of non-profits serving various industries. To list a few, she was one of the founders of the National Latina Business Women Association-Atlanta, has served as president and subsequently chairperson of the Georgia Hispanic Bar Association, served on the board of CredAbility Inc., and the Latin American Chamber of Commerce. She currently serves on the Latin American Association’s Advocacy Committee and the State of Georgia's Personnel Board. Ms. Fagundo also regularly lectures at community events and contributes to newspapers and television shows to counsel the Hispanic community about its legal rights and duties.

Ms. Fagundo and her family enjoy the outdoors and further support the groups with which her husband and she work by doing fun volunteer work such as paddling down the Chattahoochee River for river clean-ups and otherwise engaging in events to improve or maintain our state’s natural resources.
