About Our Firm
Kabat Chapman & Ozmer LLP (“KCO”) is a boutique labor and employment and business litigation law firm with offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, and Los Angeles. We represent Fortune 500 companies in class and collective actions, complex commercial disputes of all types, and labor and employment disputes in jurisdictions across the country. We also provide consulting services, training, day-to-day advice, and conduct internal investigations in the areas in which we litigate.
KCO occupies a unique position in the legal market: While most smaller firms tend to be regional and small-market in scope, we have a truly national client base and scope of practice which we manage out of our offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, and Los Angeles. Because of our national capabilities, our clients trust us to manage their work across the country. This not only provides great efficiencies, it allows our clients to take advantage of our Atlanta rates in markets such as Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. This unique mix allows us to offer our clients the personal attention and efficiency clients expect from a smaller law firm while still providing the expertise and resources of a much larger firm.
These are not just words. Over the past few years alone, KCO’s attorneys have defended multiple Fortune 150 clients as lead counsel in over 100 class and collective action lawsuits in federal and state courts throughout the country. We have had great success in these matters, with only one such case surviving class certification. We have also successfully prosecuted and defended hundreds of other employment and business litigation matters, including “bet-the-company” disputes between industry-leading competitors, and we have successfully defended clients in dozens of consumer-facing class and individual lawsuits of all types. We have handled these cases in over 35 states across the country, including Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio and Oklahoma. Many of these cases involved hundreds of millions of dollars in potential exposure and garnered significant media attention.
It is this record of success in high-profile and high-exposure matters that has provided KCO’s attorneys the opportunity to represent clients such as Charter Communications, Marriott International, Time Warner Cable, Georgia-Pacific, Comcast Corporation, Global Payments, Inc., FleetCor Technologies, Cox Communications, Assurant, Turner Broadcasting System, Hyatt Corporation, Johnny Rockets, Allegheny Energy, JPMorgan Chase, Reverse Mortgage Solutions, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Columbian Chemicals, Cbeyond Communications, and Birch Communications in jurisdictions across the country. Our team’s record of success has also resulted in more than half of our attorneys being recognized as Super Lawyers®, Rising Stars®, Georgia’s “Legal Elite – The Best Lawyers in Georgia,” AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell, and/or “Top Rated Lawyers in Labor & Employment.”
As the Vice President & Chief Counsel of one of our Fortune 150 clients wrote in an unsolicited email: “This is a team we trust with our most high stakes work and our trust has always been rewarded. We also happen to have a ton of fun working with you guys which is the way life should be.” This quote is representative of the feedback we receive from our clients. Simply put, we take our client’s legal matters personally. As a result, we have been successful in building longstanding relationships with our clients, some going back over 25 years, based on trust, confidence and friendship.
We would be pleased to provide contact information for any or all our clients as we recognize they can provide the truest picture of our Firm, our attorneys, our staff, and the quality of our legal services.
