Written by:

Higgs Fletcher & Mack Partner Alexis Gutierrez was named to San Diego Metro magazine’s list of top attorneys for 2019. According to San Diego Metro, the list honors “some of the best and brightest legal minds in the region.”

Gutierrez has successfully provided business and employment counseling and complex commercial litigation support to public and private entities, and non-profit organizations for the last twenty years. His extensive trial experience covers a wide variety of complex cases in federal and state courts, and before numerous administrative agencies including the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), the California Labor Commissioner, and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

He has litigated numerous business disputes to verdict, including those brought by entities, individuals, and class plaintiffs, involving employment issues (wrongful termination, discrimination, employment-related torts and wage claims); business disputes (including trade secrets; unfair competition; contract-related claims, intellectual property infringement and ownership, and environmental claims), representative and class action suits concerning employment claims (including discrimination, wage and hour and Private Attorney General Act Claims), and consumer statute-driven theories (California’s Unfair Competition, Consumer Legal Remedies Act, and False Advertising).

“This is a well-deserved honor for an attorney who not only does so much for his clients, but also for our Firm and his community,” said Steve Cologne, Managing Partner of Higgs Fletcher & Mack.

“We congratulate Alexis on this wonderful recognition.”

Gutierrez currently chairs Higgs, Fletcher & Mack’s Litigation Department, in addition to serving on the Firm’s Executive and Management Committees. He also serves in several leadership roles in the community and on a variety of non-profit boards. San Diego Metro’s Top Attorneys list appears in its June issue, which can be found online here:
