Our Oregon employment practice is top of market and represents leading regional and national clients.
Our deep team allows us to never shy away from clients’ service needs, and to handle large dockets of litigation without fear of going to trial. Further, our even spread of attorney experience allows our team to continue to flourish well into the future. We actively invest in our junior attorneys and actively are providing leadership and mentoring opportunities to our rising women and minority attorneys.
Many firms in the Oregon market are small employment-only boutiques and cannot offer employers the full complement of legal services. Not only does our team frequently work on all manner of employment issues, but we also have in-house labor experience (an area few local practices invest in). We also have a strong employee benefits and executive compensation team that can help clients to complete their team. Being part of a national firm, our Portland lawyers work closely with colleagues in all areas of importance to clients, including for example cutting-edge privacy developments that impact remote workforces.
