What We Do

We operate a national labor & employment law practice, representing companies, owners, and executives in connection with the employment disputes that affect them most deeply. Our work crosses a variety of industries, including financial services, technology, manufacturing, fashion, and entertainment.

We assist clients in negotiating and litigating their most important agreements, including employment and separation agreements with highly placed executives. We regularly advise on restrictive covenants; partnership and shareholder agreements; stock grants, stock options, and other compensation-related agreements; intellectual property protections; and severance agreements.

When companies face allegations of wrongdoing, we assist boards of directors and individual employees in connection with internal and external investigations. 

We also represent parties in litigation over claims of discrimination and retaliation, including racial discrimination, sexual discrimination and harassment, and age discrimination.

Who We Represent

We represent financial market participants, regularly including:

  • Companies
  • Founders and owners
  • Boards of directors
  • Executives
  • Other professionals

Why We Win

As a regular advocate for employees, employers, and owners, we have deep insight into the perspectives of all parties to the disputes we litigate. As lawyers who draft separation agreements, restrictive covenants, and other employment agreements that often become the subject of disputes, we understand the nuances of the documents we litigate. And as an employment practice unattached to an Am Law 100 firm, we are free of the conflicts of interest that limit their representations.
