Our attorneys are the trusted advisors to clients expanding and developing the human resources capabilities, navigating state and federal mandates, or solving thorny HR dilemmas. When necessary, we work hard and smart to protect our clients' rights before courts, arbitrators, and government agencies.


We take a proactive approach to labor and employment relations by understanding each client's business objectives, identifying risks, and assisting in developing strategies to achieve those objectives. We provide management training and policy development. We advise clients daily on responses to labor and employment issues. Our combination of education, guidance, and prevention support results in significant cost savings, as well as establishing a more productive workplace.

Litigation is a daily reality in the HR sphere. We are there to support our clients with decades of experience positioning to negotiate a satisfactory resolution or, if necessary, fighting for the best possible outcome in the courts or in arbitration.

Our Employment and Labor group has extensive experience in a wide range of federal and state statutory, regulatory, and common law rules that govern employer/employee relations.

We regularly represent clients from coast to coast in various state and federal courts, as well as before administrative bodies -- handling claims of unfair labor practices, discrimination, sexual harassment, employee misclassification and pay disputes, wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, workers' compensation, denial of benefits, fiduciary liability, and employment contract disputes. 

Our attorneys also represent companies in complex employment litigation involving class actions, collective actions, and actions concerning unfair competition, employee non-compete, nonsolicitation, and confidentiality covenants, as well as trade secret, tortious interference, and employee raiding claims.

Because we are part of a full service law firm, our clients also receive the benefit of the experience of attorneys in our employee benefits, immigration, corporate, and tax groups when any of these issues arises in an employment matter.

Our group takes great pride in working closely with our clients both on and off-site to provide the legal assistance needed in today's ever-changing labor and employment scene. Our experience gives us the ability to anticipate and provide solutions in every aspect of the employment relationship.
