We don’t lose sight of the end-game.

From negotiated resolution to appellate review, we are well-seasoned in defending employers against the full range of state and federal employment law theories. Regardless of employer size or industry, our process always begins with identification and careful assessment of the client’s ultimate goal. We are known to ask “If you could wave a magic wand, what would you like to see happen?” We don’t take the answer to that question lightly. We help employers carefully consider all the possible outcomes and their ramifications and, in the process, define what “winning” really means for them. The answer is always much more nuanced than “obtaining a favorable ruling.” That first step is equally important in the context of administrative charges, allowing us to better meet our clients’ objectives when we guide them through administrative agency audits or step in as needed to defend against state and federal regulatory charges and enforcement.
