While attorneys at Swayze LLC are not litigators, we work closely with John E. MacDonald, Esq., Partner of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete LLP. While we refer all of our employment and labor litigation clients to John, we do not receive referral fees  and our clients are by no means obligated to engage him.

John is the official head of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete LLP's Princeton office. He concentrates his practice in the area of employment and labor litigation with an emphasis on discrimination litigation, employment counseling, restrictive covenant litigation (non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreement litigation), and FINRA securities arbitration. John has extensive trial experience in both state and federal courts in New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New York. John has argued cases before the New Jersey Appellate Division, the New Jersey Supreme Court, and before the United States Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

Prior to attending law school, John worked for Bloomberg, L.P. in the European bond department.
