Gary Eidelman represents employers in labor and employment law and business matters, with a particular emphasis on non-compete, restrictive covenant and trade secret counseling and litigation. A Fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, Gary is recognized by clients for his proactive, business-oriented approach to solving their problems. He litigates labor and employment cases, both jury and non-jury, and argues motions for injunctive relief in state and federal courts. Gary's clients come from across the business spectrum and range from one of the world's largest publicly traded insurance broking and solutions companies to a global leader in fintech and payments to one of the region's fastest growing technology government contractors.


As an outgrowth of his business-oriented labor and employment practice, Gary often serves as the "go-to" lawyer for clients on a variety of other legal matters. This results in collaboration with lawyers from different practice groups in the Firm who bring their own knowledge and skill sets to the client relationship.

In addition to his client work, Gary has long been active and has held leadership positions in the American Bar Association's Section of Labor and Employment Law, including as management chair of the Employment Rights and Responsibilities Committee (2020-2022), and has been a regular presenter at the Labor Section's annual national CLE conference. He has held several leadership positions within the firm, including having served on its Executive Committee and as chair of the Labor and Employment Practice. He also has served on several non-profit boards within the greater Baltimore community, including the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, and was the chairman of the Board (2009-2011) and president (2021-2023) of Beth Tfiloh Congregation.
