Profile

Edward R. Young is a shareholder in the Memphis office of Baker Donelson, where he is engaged in a unique nationwide practice limited exclusively to the representation of management in all phases of labor relations and employment law. He began his practice with Newell Fowler, who was known as one of the first labor relations attorneys in the nation. For over thirty years he has assisted clients in labor and employment litigation in state and federal courts in issues dealing with the EEOC, NLRB and the U.S. Department of Labor. Mr. Young was previously appointed by both the City of Memphis Mayor and the Shelby County Mayor to serve as a special attorney for those bodies handling labor relations matters dealing with the Fire Department, Police and Sheriff?s Department and the Hospital Authority.

The cornerstone of his philosophy and practice is the belief that in labor relations matters, it is not sufficient merely to advise clients as to what they cannot do. What is essential is the ability to furnish clients with an affirmative ?game plan,? and then to provide the methodical and detailed planning that will insure its success. He believes that excellence can be achieved only through a combination of skill, innovation, and consistency.
