Boutin Jones Inc. served as trial counsel for a regional employee leasing company against wrongful termination/whistleblower claims made by a terminated employee. After a two-week trial, the firm’s trial team succeeded in defending against the employee’s claims in their entirety and judgment was entered for the employer. Shareholder Bob Swanson was the primary Boutin Jones attorney on this matter.
