The field of labor and employment law is complex and constantly changing. Employers must be vigilant in their compliance with employment laws because employment law litigation and disputes represent one of the most potent threats to a company’s productivity and profitability. Noncompliance with labor and employment laws carries the risk costly litigation and administrative penalties.

For this reason, we work closely with our corporate clients to create preventative programs that proactively address employment problems before they escalate into litigation.

Employment Litigation

Unfortunately, civil litigation is an unavoidable reality in the business world and not all problems can be prevented. When faced with litigation, we work efficiently and effectively to find cost-effective solutions for our clients’ problems. We seek every opportunity for early termination of lawsuits, but when forced into the courthouse our highly experienced and dedicated attorneys vigorously fight for our clients.

Whether we are representing employers or employees, we are committed to providing effective, yet efficient representation. We are committed to using the full breadth of our knowledge, experience, and expertise to secure a positive resolution of every case, whether it involves an individual or a class of thousands.
