Employment & Labor
With two decades of experience as a practicing attorney, labor-and-employment lawyer Karin McGinnis is known as a true business partner when litigating and providing counsel on a host of employment law issues.
McGinnis provides a single source of comprehensive employment law experience, including misappropriation of trade secrets, employee raiding and breach of noncompetition agreements, wage-and-hour litigation and advice, discrimination, harassment and leave issues, mass layoffs and employee severance, and international employment advice. Her non-fragmented approach ensures that her clients’ unique situations are appropriately vetted, strategized and handled.
In the age of increasing commoditization of legal services, from off-the-shelf employee handbooks to one-size-fits-all non-competes, McGinnis knows that no two clients’ needs are alike, and she works to achieve results that best fit each client’s culture, resources and goals.
Her experience enables her to spot potential issues for her clients before they are raised by employees, the government or opposing counsel. McGinnis’ clients find that she has a strategic and practical perspective and the ability to advise on preventive measures, provide corrective solutions, and fully litigate her clients’ issues. This bespoke, forward-thinking approach saves employers time, money and grief in the long run.
