Employment Litigation

Employment Litigation

We regularly represent companies of various sizes and types, including private equity firms, hotels, restaurants, travel companies, nonprofit organizations, accounting firms, real estate management companies, digital media companies, startups and small family-owned businesses, in state and federal courts and before arbitration panels and administrative agencies defending claims arising from their employment relationships.

 

We frequently appear before both state and federal courts, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, state and local administrative agencies, the National Labor Relations Board, FINRA, and the American Arbitration Association.

 

We defend employers in single-plaintiff and class/collective actions brought by former or present employees against claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, violations of disability and leave statutes, breach of contract, restrictive covenant and confidentiality matters, defamation, tort claims and violations of federal, state and local wage and hour matters.

 

We have successfully defended employers and management in single-plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and class action discrimination and wage and hour lawsuits.  We successfully respond to and manage complex issues that arise from workplace crises, including high-profile sexual harassment complaints.  In addition to claims by former or present employees, we also regularly defend companies and their directors and officers against claims of violations of accessibility requirements under the ADA, both on websites and at physical premises, and housing discrimination and retaliation.

 

We regularly represent employers in disputes arising from non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements, unfair competition, wrongful termination, breach of fiduciary duty and corporate trade secrets.
