The firm’s labor and employment practice is dedicated to providing companies and individuals with sophisticated counseling and zealous advocacy in the highly regulated area of labor and employment law. A significant part of the practice involves representing clients in governmental administrative proceedings, employment litigation and employment and labor arbitrations. These matters include claims involving wage and hour compliance, alleged discrimination and retaliation, state non-competition laws, and disputes related to collective bargaining agreements. Additionally, our attorneys focus on providing practical and informed advice regarding compliance with changing employment regulations, as well as counsel on the use of training programs to reduce a company’s risk and effectively manage personnel within the confines of applicable labor and employment laws.
Our attorneys are highly experienced in employee benefits, executive compensation and similar ERISA matters. We counsel clients on the design, creation, maintenance and termination of retirement, health and welfare, equity, and executive compensation plans and programs. We also excel in other matters that affect the day-to-day employment relationship, from recruiting through termination. This includes drafting employee handbooks and policies, executive employment contracts, and covenants not-to-compete.
