Rob Carrol Named Top California Labor Lawyer by the Daily Journal

The Daily Journal has recognized Arent Fox Partner Rob Carrol as a Top Labor Lawyer in California.

Rob’s clients include Silicon Valley startups to Fortune 200 companies, many from the food and agriculture, alcohol beverage, manufacturing, solid waste disposal, insurance, and hospitality sectors. Rob is widely recognized for his traditional labor and wage-hour class action experience in California. 


When talking to the Daily Journal, Rob detailed how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed his practice. “As we closed the economy, I was asked to be on a firmwide COVID-19 committee to help clients deal with the process,” said Rob. “We had to become instant experts. In the Union context, the main issue has been to make sure that members are provided with a safe work environment.”

‘Bet-The-Company’ Advisor

Daily Journal reported that Rob’s clients include companies like Califia Farms, the Louis Roederer Family, including Roederer USA, and Lagunitas Brewing Co. Rob has been negotiating a first union contract for the City of Industry-based Jacmar Foodservice Distribution following litigation before the National Labor Relations Board and an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit regarding the validity of the underlying union election.

In another recent case, Rob and his team defended “San Jose-based RFI Communications in a potential class action over wage and hour and meal and rest period issues. The bet-the-company case ended when they won a summary judgment motion last August.”
