Reyburn Lominack is a partner in the firm's Columbia office. He is certified by the South Carolina Supreme Court as a Specialist in Employment and Labor Law. Only 63 of the approximately 10,000 practicing attorneys in South Carolina carry this distinction.
A significant percentage of Reyburn’s practice is devoted to representing employers in traditional labor matters, including union avoidance campaigns, grievance arbitrations, strikes/lockouts, successorship issues, collective bargaining negotiations, and unfair labor practice cases before the National Labor Relations Board. He has handled matters in all but four of the Board’s twenty-six regions and has advised clients on labor law issues in almost every state in the country.
Reyburn is also an accomplished appellate advocate. He has presented oral arguments in cases before the Fourth, Seventh, and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals, and he has drafted briefs in cases before the First Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
On the employment law side, Reyburn’s practice includes handling lawsuits and administrative charges alleging discrimination/harassment and wage and hour violations. He also represents employers in industries such as healthcare, sales, financial services, and insurance on both the plaintiff and defense side in employee defection matters, including lawsuits involving non-competition, non-solicitation, non-disclosure, and confidentiality agreements.
Reyburn is a contributing editor for The Developing Labor Law and Employment at Will treatises, published by the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law, as well as the South Carolina Employment Law Reference Guide, published by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.
