Lisa Vickery is a partner in the firm’s Portland office. Lisa’s practice focuses on representing public and private sector employers in labor negotiations, labor arbitrations, and administrative hearings. She has advised clients on strikes/lockouts, relocation and closures, and work jurisdiction disputes. Lisa has successfully litigated unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board and state labor boards.
Lisa regularly advises and provides training to clients on union awareness and other labor matters. She assists clients in responding to union organizing campaigns and is adept at developing labor strategies to avoid campaigns altogether. However, in the event a petition is filed, she has considerable experience handling representation matters before the National Labor Relations Board.
Lisa has an extensive background in traditional labor law. Prior to joining Fisher Phillips, she worked as an associate counsel at an international union and represented public- and private-sector labor organizations at boutique labor firms in Washington, D.C. During law school, Lisa was awarded a Peggy Browning Fellowship and clerked at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters through that program. Her prior experience gives her valuable insight into how unions approach bargaining and contract administration.
