Employment & Labor Litigation

Our attorneys are experienced in providing advice and counseling that minimize the risk of employment litigation. Even though we frequently advise clients on preventive and cost-effective alternatives, litigation is still an unavoidable reality in the business world and litigation defense is a significant part of our practice.

Our attorneys are experienced in:

  • Representing management in labor and employment disputes.
  • Representing employers in public and private sectors in employment matters.
  • Representing employers before both Federal and State employment agencies in employment discrimination matters.
  • Advising employers on discharging employees and representing employers accused of wrongfully discharging their employees.

In the area of employment regulations, our attorneys counsel employers on federal and state minimum wage and overtime laws, New York State Labor Law, and general regulations regarding employment hours, conditions and pay. We also represent employers facing charges with the State and Federal Departments of Labor that allege a violation of any of those laws or regulations.
