JANUARY 22, 2018 – Camilo Echavarria, a partner in the Employment Services Group of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, has been recognized in the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of the city’s Most Influential Minority Attorneys.
Camilo was featured in a section published in the January 22th edition of the Journal.
Camilo is a litigator who defends employers in single-plaintiff, multi-plaintiff, and class action cases involving wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour issues, unfair competition, non-competes, and Unruh Act. In his appellate practice, Camilo has represented both appellants and appellees in state and federal courts, and has been successful in defending all grants of summary judgment that have been appealed.
His clients include Bank of America, 24 Hour Fitness, Providence Health & Services, Sonic Healthcare, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Toyo Tires, and Compass Group USA.
Camilo’s two decades of experience includes over three years as in-house counsel for NBC Universal, which gives him firsthand knowledge of cost-effective ways to partner with clients and provide responsive, results-oriented counsel. He has developed numerous alternative fee arrangements for his corporate clients, enabling them to reduce legal spend and maintain budget predictability.
Camilo is also very active in the community. He serves on the board of directors for the California Minority Counsel Program, the board of trustees for the Mexican American Bar Foundation, and the board of directors for LK Health, a nonprofit medical clinic that provides health care to underserved and uninsured Latino populations and the general public in Los Angeles County. He is also the former Southern California president for the Hispanic National Bar Association.
Camilo’s other honors include being named to the “Top 100 Under-50 Diverse Executive Leaders,” by Diversity MBA Magazine in 2015 and “California’s 75 Top Labor and Employment Lawyers,” by the Daily Journal in 2014.
Camilo will be the head of Davis Wright Tremaine’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee starting in March 2018.
