The Firm is regularly engaged on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of significant employment-related actions, whether such work takes place in the courtroom, the arbitration hearing room, the board room, or the conference room. Our work on both sides of the proverbial aisle gives us significant insight into how counterparties may approach any given dispute, and provides us with a unique skill set to navigate a swift and favorable outcome for our clients. Our presence alone often deters frivolous claims, or short-circuits what would otherwise be costly and protracted proceedings.
Our extensive experience spans all areas of employment law, including wrongful termination, constructive discharge, unfair competition, retaliation, discrimination, harassment, breach of restrictive covenants, unpaid compensation, breach of fiduciary duties, theft of corporate opportunities, executive hiring and separation agreements, consulting agreements, and severance negotiations. We have worked across a broad range of industries, including law, health care, automobile, banking, and media and entertainment.
Outside of litigation, we also perform internal investigations and provide guidance to employers regarding employment issues of employee misconduct, employment agreements, and training. We advise employers and boards of directors regarding terminations with and without cause, forfeited benefits, and disciplinary actions. We regularly counsel clients on developing optimum policies to avoid employment-related issues, and in determining the most cost-effective and strategic course when litigation is threatened.
Clients value our comprehensive approach to addressing employment-related issues. Beyond litigation, investigations, and compliance issues, we also advise clients on public relations, crisis management, and other needs as they arise. Our holistic approach – when combined with our strong track record in litigation – equips us with the unique ability to deliver wins and favorable settlements for clients faced with the most challenging legal issues.
