Damian Taylor is “AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rated” by Martindale-Hubbell®, and he has been named in Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, and Florida Super Lawyers. Damian was born in Recife, Brazil on March 18, 1968. He represents clients in labor and employment matters and general civil litigation. He has significant trial experience in state and federal courts and has defended numerous employers against claims under Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), the Florida Civil Rights Act, state and federal whistleblower statutes, and many other labor and employment laws. That representation includes the handling of government investigations by agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), the Florida Commission on Human Relations (“FCHR”), and the Department of Labor (“DOL”).

Damian frequently represents parties in disputes over non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and various forms of unfair competition. Much of his practice is devoted to helping employers avoid litigation through proactive measures like: implementation of employee handbooks, employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, and best employment practices; audits of exempt and non-exempt employee classifications and payroll practices under the FLSA; Form I-9 audits; investigations of alleged misconduct in the workplace; management training; and consultation with managers regarding hiring, discipline, and termination practices, and compliance with the myriad of laws and regulations affecting the workplace. Damian’s general civil litigation practice includes the representation of clients with respect to disputes over the ownership, management, and dissolution of businesses, contract performance, real estate, construction, landlord-tenant, probate, guardianship, and a variety of other matters. Where appropriate, he assists clients with resolving disputes through mediation or arbitration.
