Employment Litigation

We specialize in helping our clients navigate through the complex and sometimes confounding issues that arise in employment relationships and the termination of those relationships.

In addition to handling claims of wrongful termination, retaliation, harassment, discrimination, and wage and hour violations, we also have expertise in claims dealing with whistle-blowers, breach of employment agreements, trade secret misappropriation, and breach of the duty of loyalty.
