Strategic, effective, and efficient dispute resolution
Employment disputes are among the most disruptive to workplace harmony—and have the potential damage your reputation with your employees, your customers and the public. And these disputes often feel personal because the motives of your leaders and managers – and often your company’s overall culture – are at issue.Our employment litigation team consists of top-notch attorneys who regularly work across office lines to assemble teams tailored to achieving the best results. We do not offer a “one size fits all’ solution. Our lawyers get to know your organization and tailor our approaches to align with your business needs, your company culture, and the particulars of your case.
Our depth and experience allows us to efficiently handle the full range of litigation issues – from routine charges of discrimination to highly complex class action lawsuits—in federal and state court across the country, as well as before any administrative agency or commission where a claim has been brought against you. Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling jury trials, litigation, employee lawsuits, class and collective actions, private arbitration proceedings, and unfair labor practice charges. In every case, your business goals guide our strategy. We have achieved a string of great successes by employing creative, cost-effective, and cutting-edge tactics.
We regularly defend claims brought throughout the United States under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII); the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA); the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA); the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA); the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN); the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA); the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA); the Equal Pay Act (EPA); and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), as well as their state and local law counterparts. In addition, our lawyers are well-versed on the increasing number of state laws that extend employee protections beyond their federal counterpart or in areas in which there is no federal law. We have significant experience executive compensation, employment contract, and independent contractor disputes.
