Megan L. Janes
Megan Janes is an associate in the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office. Megan is a litigator who has represented employers of all sizes before state and federal courts, and before administrative agencies. Her practice includes contentious non-compete litigation involving trade secrets, concealed solicitation, and injunctive relief, as well as actions involving issues such as Title VII discrimination, overtime, and the Family Medical Leave Act, both at the administrative level and in court.
Megan also assists employers with HR matters, including counseling her clients on ways to reduce the risk of litigation or conducting informative trainings on how to comply with employment laws.
Prior to joining Fisher Phillips, Megan was a litigation attorney at a Fort Lauderdale-based firm where she practiced complex commercial litigation and employment law. In addition to routine employment law issues, her practice encompassed complex business disputes, as well as high-value fraud and corporate misconduct claims. One of Megan’s significant victories involved pursuing a rogue real estate manager: following a jury trial, a nearly $30 million dollar racketeering judgment was entered.
Outside the office, Megan is a board member of the Federal Bar Association, Broward Chapter, and actively involved with other community organizations, such as ARC Broward, UVa Alumni (South Florida), and the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
