Practice Areas

Patrick Madden is a former co-chair of K&L Gates' global labor and employment and class action practice groups, and leads its wage-and-hour class action practice. He advises employers on employment issues, including complex contracts, wage compliance, and compensation plan design. He defends employers against agency investigations and individual lawsuits, and has handled hundreds of class, collective, and government enforcement actions, some involving claims for hundreds of thousands of employees and billions of dollars. His knowledge of arcane exemptions and exceptions coupled with early strategic planning help him extinguish these matters while keeping client costs to a minimum.
