Employment

We know what keeps you up at night. Whether you employ 300 or 3,000, our labor and employment attorneys can advise on all areas of employment litigation, from wrongful termination claims to class action defense.

We routinely advocate on behalf of our clients before administrative agencies, state and federal courts and labor arbitrators across the nation. Employers count on us to devise effective litigation strategies, pursue alternative methods of dispute resolution or advise them on:

  • Employment litigation
  • Enforcement of non-compete agreements
  • Litigation prevention
  • Insurance
  • Claims-management systems

The Labor and Employment Law group’s breadth of experience and bench strength allows us to customize our approach and assign the right number of lawyers to efficiently handle the circumstances of each case. Our network of lawyers located in offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Delaware, Indiana, Illinois, Los Angeles, Michigan, Minneapolis, Ohio, and Washington D.C., give us the opportunity to put together an aggressive team of litigators for complex cases.

Our litigation support staff includes experienced legal assistants, jury consultants, research librarians and computer specialists. These in-house capabilities reflect our continuing sensitivity to the ever-increasing need for sophisticated services, while at the same time controlling the cost of litigation.

Beyond litigation, our attorneys advise clients on a wide range of transactional and preventative matters, including:

  • Employee-sensitive matters relating to corporate governance
  • Sale and/or acquisition of assets
  • Divestitures and/or reorganizations
  • Downsizing
  • Terminations

We also help clients draft key employment-related documents, such as executive employment agreements, arbitration programs, contractor agreements, restrictive covenants, handbooks, severance agreements, and affirmative action programs.
