We work closely with our clients to continually assess risk and avoid litigation. When litigation arises, we are well-equipped to defend our clients in state and federal courts with a steady focus on the client’s goals. Resolving cases efficiently and reaching closure can minimize the total cost to the company and limit the impact on the work force and the organization’s objectives. When it is necessary to litigate, we have the depth of expertise to do so both effectively and efficiently.
Our employment litigators, many of whom have practiced in this area for more than 30 years, have a tremendous track record. We are also experienced in obtaining summary judgments for clients.
We have experience defending employers in cases alleging:
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- FMLA and related state leave law violations
- Gender and pregnancy discrimination
- Race/national origin discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Wrongful termination
- Trade secrets
- Wrongful discharge
- Retaliation (including Sarbanes-Oxley retaliation)
- Wage and hour violations
With each case, we do an early case analysis to advise employers of their options and facilitate a collaborative discussion about strategy, creative litigation approaches and ultimate goals. We set and work to budgets and communicate regularly on case status.
We are enthusiastic about alternative fee arrangements, including fixed fees, blended rates, and other tools to promote predictability and efficiency, depending on a client’s situation, needs and preferences.
