Ken Carlson is a certified mediator who has practiced labor & employment law exclusively since 1993. The majority of his practice now involves serving as a mediator or arbitrator, primarily focusing on various areas of employment law such as discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, breach of employment contract, FLSA/wage & hour, ERISA/benefits, and trade secret/covenant not to compete issues. As a certified mediator, Ken mediates cases in both federal and state courts throughout North Carolina, and in other states upon request.

Ken is a former chair of the Dispute Resolution Section of the North Carolina Bar Association, and a Fellow with the American Bar Foundation.  He is consistently named to Business North Carolina’s annual “Legal Elite”, to the list of North Carolina “Super Lawyers,” and to the Best Lawyers in America for labor & employment law and/or alternative dispute resolution.  At various times, he has also received the Best Lawyers’ “Lawyer of the Year” recognition in both areas of practice for the Winston-Salem/Greensboro metropolitan area.

Ken is a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars, and has written numerous articles and CLE materials on such diverse matters as mediating in a manner to help avoid impasse, “best practices” for a successful mediation, legal ethics in mediation, and the pros and cons of employment law arbitration.  In addition to his mediation and legal practice, Ken is an adjunct professor at the Wake Forest University School of Law where he teaches courses in negotiation and trade secrets/unfair competition.
