Employment

Barnes & Thornburg LLP labor and employment litigators advocate our clients' rights at the administrative agency level, trial courts, and appellate levels in state and federal courts throughout the United States. We also represent clients in alternative methods for resolution of disputes outside the courtroom, through negotiation, arbitration, and mediation. We provide nationwide coordination of employment litigation and non-compete enforcement for several Fortune 500 clients and advise clients with respect to litigation prevention, insurance, and claims-management systems.

The range of legal practices among the firm's labor and employment litigators enables us to tailor the staffing of litigation to the size and specialized elements of each case. Our complement of attorneys in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Delaware, Indiana, Michigan, Minneapolis, Ohio, and Washington, D.C., gives us the resources to commit an aggressive team when needed for complex cases and emergencies. We have developed systems for early evaluation of cases, case-management planning, and budgeting to enable us to conduct litigation in a manner focused on achieving our clients' objectives.

Our litigation support staff includes experienced legal assistants, a licensed private investigator, 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.
