    Kyle Hartman


    Mr. Hartman is a partner based out of the Chicago office of Seyfarth Shaw LLP, where he serves on the Firm’s Pro Bono and Summer Fellowship Committees.  He is a member of the Firm’s National Labor & Employment group, and focuses on defending employers in a wide range of class actions, collective actions, and multi-plaintiff litigation.  

    Mr. Hartman’s litigation experience includes “bet the company” harassment, discrimination, independent contractor, wage and hour, and non-compete litigation utilizing cutting-edge electronic discovery methods to effectively and efficiently prepare large, complex cases for trial.  He has also served as outside counsel and independent counsel to Boards of Directors and Executive Team Members in connection with internal investigations and highly sensitive litigation matters. 

    Mr. Hartman is also well versed in the field of labor relations law and litigation, representing employers in a wide range of unfair labor practice and representation proceedings.  He advises non-union employers faced with union organizing campaigns, and has served various companies as the chief negotiator during labor negotiations.  

    Mr. Hartman frequently writes, speaks and counsels employers on compliance with the Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), and related state and federal military leave laws.  He has also contributed to written testimony and comments on proposed labor & employment legislation and regulations pending before the United States Senate, House of Representatives, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the United States Department of Labor.

    Prior to joining Seyfarth Shaw, Mr. Hartman was an intern to the Federal District Court of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, and the National Labor Relation Board, Region 30. Mr. Hartman is also an officer in the reserve forces of the US Army, and a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
