Our employment litigation attorneys represent both employees and employers, testament to the zealousness and fairness that we bring to the table.
In employment disputes, nobody wants to go to court, but sometimes there’s no choice. Our clients trust us to be their champions at the negotiating table and, if need be, in the courtroom. And we don’t let them down.
Employment claims often present difficult challenges, including complex administrative procedures or rapidly changing case law and regulations. The types of employment matters we handle bridge a number of areas, including:
- Breach of Employment Contracts
- Employment Discrimination
- Executive Employment Contracts
- Family and Medical Leave Act Violations
- Severance & Separation Agreements
- Sexual Harassment
- Stock Options, Performance Awards & Commissions
- Wage & Hour Litigation
- Whistleblower Law
- Wrongful Termination
Sometimes, the number of workers who fall victim to unfair practices can be quite large, and we routinely represent some or all of them in collective actions in federal courts across the United States.
While litigation can be an effective way to end the dispute, we know that it’s not the only way – nor is it always the best way – to obtain the best results for our clients. We believe in the importance of determining when and how to litigate, and when to find a solution through negotiation and creative thinking, a philosophy that comes from years on the front lines fighting on behalf of both employers and employees.
