The lawyers at MDM&C represent employers in a wide-ranging labor and employment practice. We defend clients against various statutory claims of alleged discrimination in hiring, promotion, benefits and discharge, and common-law wrongful discharge claims. These cases often have included novel constitutional, statutory, and public policy issues. MDM&C’s clients have obtained favorable jury verdicts rejecting discrimination, and other claims brought by terminated employees.
