Employment Litigation, including complex Class and Collective Actions
We are aggressive advocates on behalf of our clients who are faced with employment-related lawsuits. We regularly appear before federal, state and local courts and administrative agencies, regarding claims concerning discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, wage and hour violations, enforceability of covenants not to compete, breach of contract, fraud, negligent hiring, assault and battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. We also defend claims for benefits under ERISA and COBRA, public accommodation claims, and WARN Act claims. In addition, we have successfully defended employers in complex nationwide class action and collective action litigation, including discrimination and wage and hour matters, and have broad experience in trials, both jury and non-jury, and appeals, including before the U.S. Supreme Court.
