Jeffrey S. Sloan

The HR & Employment Law Blog is authored by employment law attorney Jeffrey S. Sloan.

For over 25 years, Jeffrey has represented high-level executives, professionals, and businesses of all types and sizes – from Fortune 500 companies to international airlines, law firms, medical groups, technology companies, multi-unit restaurant concepts, and startups – in complex labor, employment, and HR matters.

Jeffrey holds the most prestigious “AV Preeminent 5.0” ranking in labor and employment law, confirming that other lawyers and judges rank him at the very highest level of legal knowledge, experience, judgment, and overall professional excellence within the field. This is the highest rating that can be conferred upon an individual attorney or law firm, and very few lawyers and firms can claim it.

Prior to starting his own practice, Jeffrey was an Equity Partner at the international law firm Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP where he was a member of the Labor & Employment Law Group. Prior to that, Jeffrey was Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Sloan Pratt LLP, a labor and employment law boutique in San Francisco, and an Associate attorney at the international law firm Heller, Ehrman, White & McAuliffe.

Having conceived, launched, and operated several of his own ventures, Jeffrey brings to his law practice a business owner’s sensibility and problem-solving focus. Jeffrey was Co-Founder and General Counsel to PBG Development Company (in Washington, DC), Co-Founder and Managing Principal of Consequince Hospitality Solutions LLC (in Washington, DC and San Francisco), and Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Sloan Pratt LLP (in San Francisco). This real-world entrepreneurial experience allows Jeffrey to deliver practical, cost-effective legal solutions to his clients.

Jeffrey is a member of the Labor & Employment Law Section of the State Bar of California and the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association. Jeffrey is admitted to practice before the California Supreme Court and all state and federal courts in California, including the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Central, and Eastern Districts of California.
