  • Employment Litigation – Litigating of wage and hour cases, claims of harassment, discrimination and retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and similar state laws, and cases regarding the breach of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.
  • Labor and Employment Law – Assisting employers on employment-related concerns that relate to compliance with state and federal employment laws; counseling and representation on management, employee relations, and wage and hour issues.

Davidson also has experience in traditional labor issues, having recently helped an automotive parts supplier defend against the UAW's attempt to organize employees at a local facility. After several weeks, the UAW withdrew its petition for an election.

In addition to his labor practice, Davidson currently serves as the General Counsel for Bass, Berry & Sims and advises firm management and individuals on legal ethics, professional responsibility and conflicts of interest.
