One of the unfortunate facts about the contemporary business world is that even the most conscientious employer can find itself faced with litigation brought by current or former employees. We represent corporations and executives in litigation and at trial in all varieties of employment disputes, including those involving sex, race, age, and disability discrimination and harassment, wrongful termination, whistle-blowing, defamation, fraud, invasion of privacy, unfair competition, and wage-and-hour violations. We are experienced in all arenas in which employment disputes arise, including state and federal court, as well as in arbitration and before administrative agencies. We have a proven track record of success trying cases before juries and tribunals.
Consistent with our service-oriented philosophy, we treat responding to litigation as another element of our partnership with our clients. We collaborate with our clients to promptly and thoroughly gather facts and evidence necessary to effectively and expeditiously litigate the matter. Our years of litigation experience mean we work efficiently, leveraging our broad knowledge of the substantive law, as well as practical and proven litigation strategies developed over the course of many prior cases.
We provide, at an early stage, realistic case evaluations that enable our clients to make timely and cost-effective business decisions regarding litigation. We always explore ways to terminate litigation early, such as motions to dismiss and for summary judgment. We also employ alternative dispute resolution procedures (such as mediations and arbitrations) whenever doing so will benefit our clients.
We recognize that our clients must be able to predict and contain litigation costs just like any other business expense. We therefore work with our clients to come up with fee arrangements that make sense from a business perspective. We staff cases leanly and employ state-of-the-art technology to reduce the costs of document management. We keep our clients apprised of our strategy and case developments though timely communications and regular litigation updates. We always work hard ensure that our clients are well positioned for a successful litigation outcome.
