Employment Law

Recognized nationally, our firm and our experienced attorneys counsel management clients in every aspect of employment law.

The firm has extensive experience across the spectrum of employment litigation, including trial work, in cases arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act and in other federal and state laws regulating the workplace. Many of our attorneys also have extensive experience defending clients against breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge claims, covenant not to compete issues and the ever-growing list of employment tort claims.

A hallmark of our labor and employment practice is our ability to be proactive in the areas of lawsuit avoidance and preventive counseling. We routinely conduct comprehensive employment audits to expose problem areas before they become legal nightmares, while our management training seminars equip supervisors to handle tough workplace issues.

Our attorneys are routinely called upon to prepare and review employment policies and procedures manuals to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. This combination of educating supervisors on employment issues and giving employees notice of company expectations results in very real cost savings, as well as intangible personnel benefits.
