For over 80 years, we have advised employers on labor and employment issues and defended them in both state and federal courts and arbitral forums and before administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and equivalent state agencies. 

Known for our strong litigation experience, including successfully defending class and collective actions, we have defeated class certifications, obtained decertifications of preliminary class certifications, achieved early and effective settlements, obtained summary judgments, successfully tried cases, and prevailed on appeals. 

With our robust counseling experience, in true partnership with the employer, we advise on employment and labor-related business situations, including: mergers and acquisitions; purchases; sales; reorganizations; workforce reductions and restructurings; breaches of contract; creation and review of internal policies; executive hiring, compensation, and separation; trade secrets; non-competition and non-solicitation issues; and other aspects of employment. 

We regularly conduct significant employment-related investigations involving harassment, retaliation, regulatory, and other substantial matters concerning a wide range of employee situations, including C-Suite employment.
