    We serve clients' needs throughout the United States and worldwide through our participation in the Employment Law Alliance ("ELA"), the world's most extensive network of labor and employment lawyers.

    Because preventing claims is often the most effective means of meeting our clients' needs, we advise on all aspects of preventive employee relations to devise proactive strategies to comply with a myriad of constantly evolving federal and state laws regulating the workplace. When disputes do occur, our team has an outstanding trial record defending state and federal lawsuits as well as claims at governmental agencies. 

    Additionally, we regularly offer seminars providing legal updates and practical guidance for addressing workplace issues and we publish the Employer's Law Blog (, a one-stop resource for court opinions, legislation, and news at the federal, state, and local level.
