The Labor and Employment Practice at Frantz Ward is a comprehensive and cohesive group that not only brings creative solutions to clients but also devotes dozens of hours to employer and job site training and CLE programs throughout the year. The lawyers in the group are also devoted to continuous updates and information via the Navigator Blog -

Frantz Ward attorneys provide effective human resource strategies, counseling, and training to help our clients avoid costly litigation, lengthy government investigations, and other outside party intervention. We have assisted clients in the implementation of arbitration agreements and policies that enable them to avoid costly and high-risk jury trials. When litigation can't be avoided, our labor and employment lawyers consistently provide our clients with comprehensive services that lead to cost-effective, favorable results.

We represent national, regional, and local employers in the full spectrum of traditional and emerging labor law issues. Members of the group counsel our non-union clients on how to retain their status, and routinely represent employers in union organizing campaigns and unfair labor practice proceedings under collective bargaining agreements. We also negotiate collective bargaining agreements and are well-versed in the issues that arise in the bargaining process.
