ATLANTA (April 9, 2019)– Buckley Beal, one of Atlanta’s leading employment and business litigation law firms, recently named Thomas (Tom) Mew as the firm’s newest partner. He will be joining Buckley Beal’s five other partners, Ed Buckley, Drew Beal, Brian Sutherland, Nicholas Smith and Rachel Berlin.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tom for many years, and he has consistently demonstrated exceptional customer service, professionalism and employment law counsel to all of the clients he’s served,” said Managing Partner Ed Buckley. “I’m excited to welcome him as a partner as his promotion has been well-earned. We can’t wait to see how he continues to propel the firm forward and wish nothing but continued success and professional growth for him at Buckley Beal.”
Mew has extensive experience in both individual and class action wage-and-hour, discrimination, and harassment litigation, whistleblower litigation and arbitration and mediation. He also regularly advises on employment contracts, releases and restrictive covenant issues.
Mew extends his litigation expertise to more than just his clients. He frequently presents at Continuing Legal Education Events and has also written two legal books.
He is the author of “Georgia Motion Practice,” a guide to civil motion practice in Georgia’s trial and appellate courts. Most recently, he co-authored the just published book Georgia Employment Law (ALM 2019), with fellow Buckley Beal Partner Brian Sutherland. He is also a contributing author to “Employee Benefits Law (3d. Ed.)” (Bloomberg BNA 2012) and was named one of the Georgia legal community's "Rising Stars" in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
Prior to joining Buckley Beal in 2015, Tom practiced law for many years at Rogers & Hardin LLP. Tom is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law and was a member of the school’s National Moot Court team which won the National Moot Court Competition (of which Mew was awarded runner-up Best Oralist). He was also named to both the Order of the Coif and Order of the Barristers. Following law school, Tom clerked for Judge Herschel Franks of the Tennessee Court of Appeals and for the Honorable Harold L. Murphy of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
The now six-partner team is charged with making key firm decisions, overseeing its day-to-day operations, marketing and intake processes and generally ensuring the business is running at full steam.
