Hollrah LLC is a boutique law firm with a national practice dedicated to businesses that operate with contingent workers. Founder Russ Hollrah, a former equity shareholder of the country’s largest labor and employment law firm, anticipated the trend of companies increasing their use of contingent workers and established a law firm that would strive to become the preeminent national law firm on the legal issues affecting those relationships. Each day, the attorneys of Hollrah LLC work diligently to meet that standard.
Operating out of its offices based in Washington, DC, Hollrah LLC represents clients on structuring contingent-worker relationships in a wide variety of industries, and on defending those types of relationships in the courts and before federal and state administrative agencies. Because of the firm’s unique focus on contingent workers, it has developed innovative business models that have enabled firms to successfully contract with contingent workers. Moreover, through the firm’s development of creative legal strategies and arguments, it has in some cases successfully defended the treatment of service providers as independent contractors based on legal theories of first impression before the relevant tribunal.
Thought leaders on these issues, Hollrah LLC also represents companies and industry associations before the Congress and state and federal administrative agencies on proposals affecting contingent workers, and its attorneys have written widely on the subject. Examples of publications and advocacy efforts in this area by the firm’s attorneys are provided at the following links:
PJC Publishing: Publisher since 1992 of books and newsletters on legal issues affecting companies that do business with contingent workers
Coalition to Promote Independent Entrepreneurs: Multi-industry coalition consisting of associations, companies, and independent contractors dedicated to preserving the rights of firms and individuals to enter into independent-contractor relationships
