Defense Litigation

The Firm’s defense litigation practice extends to all federal and state trial and appellate courts. We represent management before administrative agencies, and at arbitration and mediation proceedings. Our vast knowledge and experience in labor and employment law, in both the private and public sector, gives us an important advantage over attorneys who are general litigators. In addition to defending employers against all forms of employment discrimination claims, our litigation practice includes defending against the increasingly prevalent common law employment actions, which often accompany discrimination counts, such as: defamation; breach of contract; negligent hiring, retention and supervision; fraud; intentional infliction of emotional distress; battery; and invasion of privacy. We also represent employers in both private and public sector Whistleblower lawsuits, as well as all other types of employment and labor law litigation.

Many of our larger clients have general corporate counsel, either outside or in-house, who are responsible for overseeing our litigation on behalf of the client. Utilizing a teamwork approach, we work closely and cooperatively with such counsel to develop the optimum litigation strategy for achieving the client’s objectives.

The Firm is proud of its reputation for being aggressive litigators, and for representing its clients in an effective and cost-efficient manner.
