The law firm of Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon & Galchus, P.C., (CGWG) represents union and non-union companies, locally, regionally and nationally, in almost every industry. We help our clients fulfill their objectives of building successful and constructive employee relations. Our innovative approaches notify (or update) managers about critical issues and allow them to guide their businesses through the challenging times of constantly changing labor and employment laws.
With over 350 cumulative years of legal expertise and practical hands-on knowledge representing management in various industries, including manufacturing, municipalities, construction, transportation and healthcare, you will find us a group dedicated to outstanding service and skillful guidance to its clients. CGWG was officially established in 1997, although the majority of Directors have been working together much longer. CGWG attorneys practice from three offices in Arkansas: Little Rock, Fort Smith and Northwest Arkansas.
Preventive law strategies and exceptional educational programs distinguish CGWG from other Arkansas firms. CGWG attorneys offer customized training programs that help companies to control costs and concentrate on achieving their core business goals. Despite this emphasis on education and prevention, claims and lawsuits still occur. When they do, CGWG has an entire firm of experienced litigators, supported by associate attorneys and paralegals, to successfully defend any type of employment or labor discrimination case.
Our philosophy extends beyond the boardroom and the courtroom. We truly believe that the firm should practice good stewardship and give back to the community by promoting civic and charitable donations of time, talent and money. CGWG's philosophy has garnered praise from legal entities, clients and objective third parties. In 2008, CGWG was named Arkansas Business of the Year in the Category II (26 to 75 employees) division. CGWG is the first law firm in the 20-year history of the Business of the Year award to receive this honor.
