Roman Zhuk’s practice focuses on employment litigation with an emphasis on representation of new car dealerships. He received his JD from the UCLA School of Law and his BA from UC Berkeley.

Roman represents clients in all aspects of labor and employment law, including matters before state and federal courts, government agencies, and in arbitration.  He routinely handles matters involving wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and state and federal wage-and-hour issues. Roman also frequently conducts formal investigations of employee complaints and on-site manager training, and counsels a multitude of clients on a daily basis regarding issues of hiring, terminations, employment policies, and compliance with various regulatory schemes including FMLA, ADA, FEHA, and the California Labor Code.

Prior to joining Fine, Boggs & Perkins, Roman was an associate with a boutique litigation firm in Los Angeles where he developed extensive expertise in defending transportation industry clients against both individual and class action wage-and-hour claims. He is intimately familiar with the rapidly-evolving jurisprudence on misclassification and arbitration enforcement, and has filed numerous successful arbitration enforcement attempts before both state and federal courts. There, Roman regularly counseled clients on mitigating the threat of future misclassification allegations through changes to operational practices and documentation.

Roman began his legal career with two years at the general counsel’s office for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA). There, he led the successful defense of the airport authority in four premises liability matters at trial, resulting in judgments where no damages were awarded to plaintiffs and authored several successful motions to protect LAWA’s interests in complex litigation matters.

Roman is admitted to practice in California. He is also admitted to argue before the federal courts for the Northern and Central Districts of California. Roman is a fluent Russian speaker.
