Profile

Chris Mills is a partner in the New Jersey office of Fisher & Phillips. For more than 30 years he has assisted clients in navigating through the maze of labor and employment laws. Chris has a wide range of experience in employment litigation, employment discrimination, workforce reduction, employment-at-will and wrongful termination, traditional labor relations law, affirmative action plans and OFCCP, and employee pension and benefit plans. He has been selected to represent major corporations in class actions under ERISA and collective claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act. He is currently lead counsel defending a major Fortune 100 Company against a class action challenging the conversion of its pension plan to a cash balance formula, and he serves as chief collective bargaining negotiator for a number of employers. Chris has been recognized by his peers by being listed in The Best Lawyers in America, selected repeatedly as a New Jersey Super Lawyer, and elected a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Chris joined Fisher & Phillips after 12 years heading what was considered the premier labor and employment boutique law firm in New Jersey, which he joined in 1989. Previously, he had worked as in-house counsel at AT&T for 12 years, where he held a number of labor law positions, completing his service as the company’s labor and employment law counsel for its corporate headquarters.
