Stacey A. Campbell is an employment and commercial litigation trial lawyer. He has successfully first-chaired jury and judge-tried trials throughout the US involving employment discrimination, ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), breach of contract, non-compete and trade secrets, and personal injury. Stacey is licensed to practice in seven (7) states, including Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming, wherein he defends his corporate clients’ interests.

He defends companies in employment discrimination cases based upon race, sex, sexual harassment, pregnancy, disability, national origin, and age. He also advises clients on and litigates covenant not to compete and unfair competition cases across the U.S. His work in this area began years ago when Stacey served as temporary in-house counsel defending and prosecuting non-compete and trade secret cases for a medical device company.

He has also litigated Fair Labor Standards Act cases and regularly advises clients on FLSA issues, conducts audits on employer pay practices, and evaluates and assists companies with proper employee classification. Prior to practicing law, Stacey’s corporate work involved administering compensation for exempt and non-exempt employees; evaluating classified exempt and non-exempt positions, and advising management on various methods to avoid improper deductions for exempt employees.

In addition to his litigation experience, Stacey has represented companies in labor disputes, labor arbitrations, and union contract development and negotiation.

Stacey’s practical approach to employment litigation and counsel stems from his previous human resources experience and work in the legal department at a greeting card company and working as temporary in-house counsel for a medical device company.
