Employment Litigation - Trials, Arbitrations and Appeals
Clients hire us because we are trial lawyers, and not just litigators. We have a record of success trying cases before juries, judges and arbitrators, as well as handling noteworthy cases on appeal. Our adversaries know this about us, and it gives us an edge at every stage of a lawsuit. Whether your goal is to settle or win at trial, you need a trial lawyer to handle your case - someone who knows from the inception of a lawsuit what it takes to win at trial or position a case for a favorable settlement.
Our vast experience representing employers and employees gives us the ability to see the big picture before others do – both inside and outside of the courtroom. Drawing on over 45 years of collective experience and success litigating employment law claims, we use creative and time-tested strategies to achieve results for our clients in litigation, and we have a record of success to back that up.
In the past decade alone, we have successfully tried numerous cases to verdict before juries and judges, and dozens of arbitrations to successful conclusion. Those cases involved claims of sexual, racial, age, and disability harassment; race, age, disability, gender and national origin discrimination; retaliation; constructive discharge; breach of contract; compensation claims; and entitlement to employee benefits.
We are comfortable before federal, state and local administrative agencies, mediators and arbitrators (AAA, JAMS and FINRA), and in the courtroom. We have vast experience in different venues, and have litigated single and multi-plaintiff and class action employment and benefits cases in 28 states over the past 30 years.
We regularly handle cases involving the following claims:
- Sex, pay disparity, pregnancy, age, race, national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation and HIV status discrimination and harassment
- Disability discrimination and reasonable accommodation
- Retaliation and whistleblowing
- Constructive discharge
- Leaves of absence (family/medical and military leaves)
- Breach of employment agreement or partnership agreement
- Incentive or equity compensation and bonuses
- Employee benefits
- Overtime pay and minimum wage
- Restrictive covenants (non-compete, non-solicitation and trade secrets)
