Employment and Labor Law

Our firm provides comprehensive solutions, strategic guidance, and unwavering advocacy in all areas of employment and labor law to for-profit and non-profit employers of all sizes looking to understand their legal obligations, follow best practices and safeguard their businesses from employment and labor law risks. Our team of experienced attorneys offers personalized legal solutions tailored to each employer’s specific circumstances and objectives. We provide balanced and insightful solutions so that our clients can quickly address priority matters, effectively manage ongoing concerns and put mechanisms and practices in place to prevent future issues.

Employment Law:

Our firm understands the complexities of the modern ever-changing workplace and the importance of maintaining compliance with employment and labor laws and regulations and avoiding disputes with employees, unions and government authorities. We strive to meet each clients’ objectives in a cost-effective way, keeping each client’s unique business considerations at the forefront of our analysis.

We will provide practical advice to address routine questions, such as those regarding FLSA, FMLA and ADA compliance, discrimination and harassment claims, hiring and firing, employee discipline and benefits. In the event of a non-routine matter or dispute arises, we will provide representation from investigation to negotiation and, if necessary, mediation, arbitration and/or litigation. In addition, we represent employers in administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor and other governmental agencies.

We routinely advise employers on best practices regarding policies, working conditions and procedures and will assist employers with drafting or review of employment contracts, employee handbooks, and workplace policies, while also advocating for employees’ rights and interests in litigation and negotiation.

In addition, the firm’s employment attorneys specialize in all areas of executive employment contract strategies, drafting and negotiation, and, in the case of disputes, will provide pragmatic legal counsel and attentive representation at the bargaining table.
