Employment Litigation & Counseling

Today’s employers face a highly complex legal and regulatory environment that can often have a dramatic impact on their business. More than ever before – and regardless of how careful and responsible they may be – employers are facing an increase in individual and collective actions as well as heightened government enforcement. The attorneys of our employment litigation practice group have decades of experience trying all manner of employment disputes in state and federal court, as well as before all relevant state and federal regulatory agencies and bodies.
