Overview

For more than 70 years, Seyfarth’s Labor & Employment Department has been recognized as one of the “go to” labor and employment groups. Our national presence with more than 400 employment attorneys at all levels of experience ensures seamless, consistent representation across jurisdictions.

While the trend among labor and employment law providers is toward specialization, with firms primarily focused on class and complex litigation or offering low-cost commoditized services, Seyfarth maintains a unique position in the industry. We handle the most complex, bet-the-company labor and employment work in the country and we also handle single plaintiff cases and routine administrative charges. Seyfarth is one of the most well-positioned firms to provide cost-effective and efficient services for routine litigation and to bring to bear the talents and resources of some of the best labor and employment lawyers in the industry when clients face more complex litigation threats.
