Koray Bulut Named to Daily Journal’s 2020 Top Labor & Employment Lawyers

Daily Journal has named partner Koray Bulut one of California’s Top Labor & Employment Lawyers for 2020. The annual list recognizes lawyers who have made significant contributions in labor and employment law through signatures wins, career achievements and thought leadership.

The publication highlighted Bulut’s unique ability to provide corporate boards with “candid advice” and an “honest assessment,” particularly when it comes to dealing with their most sensitive and important employment law matters.  

A San Francisco-based partner and the leader of Goodwin’s California Employment Practice, Bulut focuses his practice on employment counselling and litigation of employment and employee mobility matters. He has nearly two decades of experience representing Bay Area technology companies in a wide variety of issues, including employment discrimination, harassment, wage and hour violations, unfair competition, enforcement of non-competes and other restrictive covenants, misappropriation of trade secrets, and founder disputes. Bulut also has a proven track record of advising directors and senior management teams on avoidance or resolution of thorny and reputation-threatening employment issues.

In addition to his successful practice, Bulut serves as Co-Chair of Pride@Goodwin, which is committed to recruiting, retaining and advancing LGBT talent, plus creating an inclusive and supportive environment across the firm. He also serves on the Executive Committee of the Labor & Employment Section of the San Francisco Bar Association.

A prolific writer and media commentator throughout his career, Bulut has published articles in Bloomberg, Forbes, Orange County Business Journal and San Francisco Daily Journal on topics such as offboarding procedures, trade secret leaks and the challenges of managing workers in the gig economy. His influence has led to him being ranked as a leading lawyer by Chambers USA in 2020.
