We defend businesses and managers against the full range of employment law-related claims before federal and state courts, administrative agencies, and in arbitrations. Our employment litigators are experienced in defending employee lawsuits from inception through jury trial. We also handle class action litigations, appeals, unfair labor practice charges, and enforcement actions by various federal and state agencies. We have successfully defended businesses and managers against every possible claim an employee can assert, including claims of:
- sexual harassment
- breach of contract
- wrongful discharge
- defamation and other employment-related torts, and
- wage and hour violations (including collective/class actions)
We approach employment litigations with a hyper-focus on our client’s objectives. We are skilled at assessing the risks of an employment claim and finding creative, cost effective solutions. We diligently pursue expeditious resolution of claims through alternative dispute resolution techniques (such as mediation) and dispositive motion practice. In those situations when employment cases proceed to trial, we have been particularly successful. Our team is led by a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, a designation limited to less than 2% of the lawyers in New Jersey, and a rarity for an employment defense practice.
