Akerman LLP, Associate

Atlanta, Georgia

Ana Dowell represents employers in a variety of employment law matters, including alleged violations of Title VII, ADA, FMLA, and FLSA. Ana has managed discovery in these types of cases, which has involved conducting employee interviews, responding to written discovery and document requests, and preparing and defending depositions. She also has experience in drafting responsive pleadings, motions to dismiss, and other dispositive motions. Ana has represented employers from different types of industries—healthcare, construction, property management, and manufacturing. In addition to litigation, Ana regularly counsels companies on employment law compliance and personnel issues, including: drafting employee handbooks; assisting in exempt status classification; managing internal investigations relating to allegations of discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation; advising on issues relating to employee leave of absences; and counseling on matters relating to separation of employment. Ana also has represented and defended clients in government investigations brought by the DOJ and HUD. In addition, she has defended multiple employers from EEOC Charges of Discrimination, including charges brought by multiple employees on behalf of similarly-situated employees as a precursor for a class action lawsuit. Ana is fluent in Spanish and has used this skill when conducting internal investigations relating to discrimination and/or harassment for Georgia employers with a large Spanish-speaking workforce.
