Employment
We have an employment law practice focused on advising and defending employers/management when they have issues or litigation involving employees, former employees or job applicants.
Our lawyers provide training and counsel to help avoid Charges and lawsuits; they are available at the agency/commission stage and through trial, if necessary.

Because allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, etc., are time-consuming and present severe economic risks (fees and judgments), we believe they should be defended efficiently, including expedited discovery, shorter "shelf-life" and a willingness to try cases when warranted. To the extent you have Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI), we are willing to work with your carrier.
