The law firm Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart PC has added Christopher Olmsted as a shareholder in the firm’s San Diego office.
His arrival is a boost to the firm’s employment law, litigation, and wage and hour practice groups and increases the firm’s depth in California.
Olmsted joins Ogletree Deakins from Barker Olmsted & Barnier, where he was a name partner.
“Chris is a veteran employment attorney who is well known and respected in the region’s legal and human resources communities,” said Spencer Skeen, managing shareholder of Ogletree Deakins’ San Diego office. “Chris’ intricate understanding of and ability to provide solutions to the employment issues facing small and mid-sized employers will be an immediate benefit to our clients in San Diego and across Southern California.”
An experienced speaker, Olmsted serves as an instructor for Cal State University San Marcos’ Human Resource Management Certificate Program. He is very active in the San Diego non-profit community, serving on the board of directors for the Jenna Druck Foundation and Westwind Brass.
