Megan L. Janes, an associate with Tripp Scott, focuses her practice in the areas of complex commercial litigation and employment law.
The commercial litigation side of Megan’s practice encompasses complex business disputes (often intra-company), as well as high-value fraud and corporate misconduct claims, in both state and federal court. Megan’s employment law practice is well-rounded, running the gamut from contentious non-compete litigation involving trade secrets, concealed solicitation, and injunctive relief to lawsuits and EEOC claims involving issues like Title VII discrimination and Family Medical Leave Act claims.
Megan first joined the firm as a summer associate, returning as a litigation associate after graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law. While at UVa, Megan cemented her interest in Employment Law during a year-long clinic with the Legal Aid Justice Center in Charlottesville, handling issues from Americans with Disabilities Act claims to overtime and unemployment disputes. Megan also served as an Articles Editor for the Virginia Tax Review. A South-Florida native and third-generation Gator, Megan attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate studies, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Criminology, magna cum laude; minors in English and Anthropology; and a 4.0 grade point average.
Prior to joining Tripp Scott, Megan interned with the Honorable James M. Hopkins, United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Florida, and with the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida.
When she is not practicing law, Megan is active in several local organizations. She is a member of the UVa Club of South Florida, as well as the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale. As part of the Junior League, Megan has served as 2016-2017 Website Chair and 2015-2016 Co-Chair for the Done-in-a-Day Committee, organizing volunteer events with local nonprofits.
