Greg Saylin


222 South Main Street, Suite 2200, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Clients value Greg’s practical approach to problem-solving that gives appropriate weight to economic concerns, risks, and business needs. 

Greg represents a diverse array of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups. He draws on more than 20 years of employment and commercial litigation experience to counsel clients how to avoid or efficiently handle the full spectrum of employment liabilities. Clients particularly appreciate his knack for strategizing how to negotiate dangerous waters, with preventative policies and procedures, as well as counseling about employee circumstances when they arise.

Greg also helps clients to navigate broader business disputes such as restrictive covenants and non-competes, trade secrets, whistleblower liability, intentional interference, unfair business practices, as well as fraud, defamation, and other business torts.

Greg counsels clients how to remain compliant with employment laws and regulations. He provides training for supervisors and non-supervisors on a range of HR-related topics to help employers proactively avoid pitfalls and comply with EEOC and state-specific requirements. His employment law expertise makes him a sought-after speaker for professional and industry organizations as well as media outlets.

Greg began his career as a litigation associate at Latham & Watkins in California. Before joining Holland & Hart, Greg was a shareholder at a large Utah-based firm, where he chaired the Employment Practice Group and was a member of the firm’s Board of Directors. While Greg frequently represents clients in states across the nation, he is licensed in both California and Utah.
