September 04, 2014 // Franchising.com // San Francisco, CA - With a strong focus on helping our clients navigate new and complex employment laws and regulations, Nixon Peabody has added new partner Oswald Cousins, who will join our San Francisco Labor & Employment practice.

Oswald is an experienced trial lawyer who focuses his practice in the areas of wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, wage and hour, disability accommodation, trade secrets, and contract disputes. During his 20 years of practice, he has served as lead and co-lead counsel on numerous bench trials, jury trials and arbitrations in federal and state forums. Oswald provides counseling and advice to employers involving hiring and terminating employees, workplace investigations, disability accommodations, employee leaves, reductions in force, wage and hour issues, and various governmental compliance issues.

"Nixon Peabody offers a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, and collaborative culture that clients want," said Oswald Cousins. "I'm excited to join a team that encourages innovative thinking and creativity."

"Tomorrow's workplace presents new challenges, but also immense opportunity for our clients," said Anthony Barron, managing partner of Nixon Peabody's San Francisco office. "We are excited to have Ossie on our team. He is a great example of the next generation of legal leaders. Ossie is very much focused on evolving employment laws, market trends and technological advances to spot what's next for our clients." Nixon Peabody's diverse team of more than 70 labor and employment attorneys covers every angle of the workplace from complex ERISA matters, to safety regulations, to employee use of social media.

Oswald joins Nixon Peabody from Littler Mendelson's San Francisco office, prior to which he was a partner in the employment department at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. A graduate of UCLA School of Law, Oswald earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Vermont.
