Practice Areas

Elizabeth (Liz) Hodes works with Alaska’s diverse group of employers on maintaining positive and productive workplace environments. She frequently helps clients avoid workplace disputes before they occur by counseling them on all types of personnel matters—including leaves of absence, wage and hour, and harassment prevention—and conducting investigations when necessary. While her goal is to help employers avoid disputes, when litigation arises Liz ardently defends her clients from employment claims across the spectrum, from discrimination to non-compete issues and everything between. Although she often works with clients towards early and efficient case resolution, her experience in trial and in cases before the Alaska Supreme Court proves valuable at all stages of litigation.

For her corporate clients, Liz litigates disputes related to corporate governance, contracts, unfair trade practices, and other issues. She also has experience representing unionized employers, advising them on maintaining labor peace. Liz’s clients include health care entities, oil and gas companies, financial services companies, utility providers, broadcast companies, and a variety of other businesses.
