Fighting for American Workers

Types of Wage Theft

Christopher Marlborough


Christopher Marlborough is the founder of the Marlborough Law Firm. He is passionate about representing workers on wage theft issues. 

Prior to attending law school, Chris saw wage theft first hand in the course of his work as a vocational evaluator, providing work readiness assessments and career counseling to persons with disabilities. In this job, Chris developed his strong opposition to worker exploitation. 

Chris earned an undergraduate graduate degree from State University of New York at Purchase from which he graduated magna cum laude. He earned a juris doctor degree from Brooklyn Law School, from which he also graduated magna cum laude. Chris received numerous honors and opportunities at Brooklyn Law School. His note was published in the School's Journal of Law and Policy and he was awarded the Sparer Public Interest Fellowship.

Chris has been practicing in litigation since 2004 and has concentrated his practice on complex class and collective action cases since 2007. In both 2013 and 2014, Chris was selected by his peers and experts in the field as one of SuperLawyers Magazine's Rising Stars in the New York Metropolitan area. From 2015 through 2020, he was selected to the SuperLawyers list for more experienced attorneys.

Between 2016 and 2018 Chris served as Chair of the Labor and Employment Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association. Between 2014 and 2016, Chris served as the Committee's Vice Chair.

Before founding the firm, Chris worked on a number of high profile consumer fraud and wage theft cases. In an episode titled: "The Global Vision Avacor Fraud,"Chris is featured on the Insider Exclusive program as a member of the "tenacious and relentless" trial team that secured two jury verdicts for $37 and $50 million on behalf of a class of 150,000 Avacor users. Chris' experience in wage theft cases includes an action against Ruby Tuesday, Inc., where the court issued an order requiring that notice of the case be sent to more than 82,000 of the company's current and former bartenders, servers and food runners.

Since he founded the firm in 2013 Chris has served as Lead or Co-Lead Counsel in a number of certified class action cases. In 2020, Chris obtained court approval of a $7,140,000 settlement against the Call-A-Head port-a-potty company on behalf of its portable toilet service technicians. That same year, he obtained court approval of an $11,000,000 settlement on behalf of workers at a chain of discount stores in New York City.

Chris recently appeared in the documentary, "A Woman's Work, the NFL's Cheerleader Problem," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2019 and on PBS' Independent Lens film series in 2021. Chris is Co-Lead Counsel in a wage theft class action lawsuit against the NFL and the Buffalo Bills on behalf of a certified class of former Bills' cheerleaders.
