The lawyers in our Employment group comprise an experienced legal team known for being practical, professional and fair.
We counsel and advocate for both employers and employees. Our experience working on both sides sharpens our instincts for the best possible outcomes. Employment problems raise economic, privacy and morale issues that are minimized with early evaluation and resolution. We have found that conducting a prompt and thorough initial investigation of the issues allows us to work with our clients to measure risk and benefit and decide on the best approach.
We are committed to excellence and are well-respected for our work. Whether looking for advice on a limited issue, a partner for effective negotiating or attorneys who will aggressively litigate an individual or a class-based dispute, we have the skill and experience to effectively represent your interests.
Mediation & Arbitration
Our lawyers are frequently selected by other members of the employment bar to serve as neutral parties in mediation and arbitration.
Our lawyers conduct independent investigations of workplace complaints for both public and private entities. We work directly with the employer or with outside counsel to provide prompt, thorough and confidential investigations of employee complaints or suspected misconduct.
