Ann Qushair is Senior Counsel at Carlson & Jayakumar. Ms. Qushair has been representing employers for over 20 years, at both local employment law boutiques and large, national firms. During her career, she has handled the gamut of employment claims. She has devoted a significant part of her practice to defending wage and hour claims in both single-plaintiff and class action cases. She also has handled a wide variety of discrimination, harassment, constructive discharge, retaliation, and whistleblower claims, as well as related torts and business litigation claims arising in the employment context. She also has significant experience advising clients on personnel and employment related matters, performing large-scale wage and hour audits, and handling pre-litigation and administrative disputes before state and federal agencies.

Ms. Qushair also has substantial experience in appellate law. While in law school, she served as a Summer Judicial Extern to the late David G. Sills, former Presiding Justice of the California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Three. As a practitioner, she has handled or advised on over 50 writs and appeals, primarily on behalf of employers, before the California Courts of Appeal, the California Supreme Court, and the Ninth Circuit. While at Seyfarth Shaw LLP, she served for several years as the appellate “go-to” attorney for the Firm’s California offices, assisting colleagues from diverse practice groups. Ms. Qushair also has been very active with both local and national appellate bar associations, serving in leadership positions and organizing several programs on topics of interest to appellate practitioners.
