Austin Spillane joins NJL’s Labor and Employment team, lending his analytical and writing talents to litigation matters such as discrimination claims, noncompetes, and collective actions. Prior to joining private practice, Austin was a clerk for The Honorable David T. Schultz in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. During his clerkship, Austin worked on many complex matters, including multidistrict litigation and several FLSA collective actions. His experience seeing litigation disputes from a judge’s perspective helps him craft winning arguments in the courtroom.
When not advocating for clients, Austin enjoys reading, cheering on his Creighton Bluejays, homebrewing, and—for half the year—enjoying Minnesota’s natural beauty.
