Laner Muchin Attorney Darin Williams Authors Article on “The Impact of Emojis on Employment Litigation”


Chicago, IL – Darin Williams of Laner Muchin authored an article on, “The Impact of Emojis on Employment Litigation,” published by the Defense Research Institute in Raising the Bar, the newsletter of DRI’s Young Lawyers Committee.

The article comments on the increasing appearance of emojis and emoticons in federal litigation and analyzes the ways in which emojis have been used as evidence by both plaintiffs and defendants.  Based on this analysis, the article concludes by offering advice to employers on how to mitigate the impact of emojis in the workplace.

Williams joined Laner Muchin as an associate in 2016.  As a litigator, he provides creative and cost-effective defense of employment litigation for public and private sector clients. Importantly, he seeks to reduce the risk of employment litigation by advising clients on non-adversarial solutions that promote positive employee relations and make sound business sense.

In addition to authoring the article, Williams was recently elected as a Vice Chair of the Raising the Bar Subcommittee. He will serve as a Co-Editor of the "Raising the Bar" newsletter into 2019.
