Overview

The Labor and Employment Group has years of national experience, the respect of clients, the community and the judiciary, and an unsurpassed record of successful results. This all supports two simple client service goals:

  1. Prevent Conflict. We recognize the power of prevention in today's litigious workforce. Working in tandem with upper management, human resources professionals, insurers and in-house counsel, we design strategies, plans, and policies that assist our clients in achieving a conflict free workplace and significantly reducing the risk of employment related claims. We accomplish this goal through management and workforce training, audits, regular seminars and publications, client consultations, updates on recent or emerging issues, and constant accessibility.
  2. Resolve Conflict. When prevention methods are unsuccessful, employers hire us to manage disputes and deliver optimal outcomes on cases proceeding before administrative bodies, judges and juries. While we handle a large number of cases through trial and on appeal each year, we are proud of our record of success in resolving many cases through motions for summary judgment or achieving early settlements when such is consistent with our client's goals.

    BSW is also known for its experience representing management in all manner of traditional labor law practice. Our experience consists of union avoidance training, election campaign management and responding to unfair labor practice charges, strikes and pickets.
