A Chambers USA-ranked practice, we represent both public and private companies in various sectors including private equity, financial services, media, technology, software, hospitality, restaurants and real estate.
We defend employers and management in single-plaintiff, multi-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 successfully respond to and manage complex issues arising from workplace crises, including high profile sexual harassment lawsuits. We 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.
In addition to claims by former and present employees, we also regularly defend companies and their directors and officers in disputes arising from non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements, unfair competition, wrongful termination, breach of fiduciary duty and corporate trade secrets, violations of accessibility requirements under the ADA, both on websites and at physical premises, and housing discrimination and retaliation.
