Employment Litigation

Barnes & Thornburg’s labor and employment litigators advocate our clients' rights at the administrative agency level, trial courts, and appellate courts throughout the United States. With more than 50 Labor & Employment litigators across our 14 offices, we aggressively litigate your company’s interests.


With one of the largest Labor & Employment practice groups in the nation, we have experience in a broad array of employment matters across the country, ranging from class action defense, collective action defense, EEOC initiated litigation, and non-compete and trade-secret enforcement.

Trial Lawyers, Not Just Litigators

Our Labor & Employment group features seasoned trial lawyers with substantial trial experience in state and federal courts. Although alternative dispute resolution should be explored in some matters, it should always be from a position of strength, with the backbone to try cases when necessary.


We measure results by client satisfaction, whether through dismissals of routine agency charges, summary judgments, defense jury verdicts, or appellate results.
