Philip S. Mortensen has been representing both private and public sector employers in labor and employment law matters for over thirty years. Prior to joining Barton, Phil was with Jackson Lewis and Kreitzman, Mortensen & Borden.

Phil’s Labor Law practice has concentrated in the areas of union avoidance, collective bargaining, National Labor Relations Board litigation and arbitration.

Phil’s Employment Law experience extends from drafting employee handbooks to working closely with managers and training supervisors to ensure compliance with all applicable laws such as equal employment opportunity laws and wage/hours laws. He has conducted many on-site, in-depth “Risk Review” meetings with management in order to make certain of employer’s compliance with Federal and State anti-discrimination laws, to identify potential risks and exposures, and to recommend appropriate and lawful action in order to rectify those potential vulnerabilities. In both administrative proceedings as well as related court litigation, Phil has represented and defended management in numerous employment discrimination actions.

Phil is a member of the American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and The Florida Bar. He has authored various comments and articles regarding NLRB case law developments and recommended management approaches to Equal Employment Opportunity issues.
