Our Approach

We believe that the best defense is a good offense. If employees understand what’s expected of them in the workplace — through clear communication of your policies, clear reporting procedures that allow for the resolution of disputes, and the delivery of periodic training on professionalism — then employers can rest easier over the potential for a claim. We partner with you to help set these expectations.

If you're faced with a claim, we partner with you to establish priorities and leverage resources to handle your matters effectively. We understand the cost constraints when defending these claims — especially single-plaintiff matters. We focus on providing you with the best defense, using a cost structure that will help deliver the best value.

Employment Disputes
  • Wrongful termination, retaliation, and harassment claims
  • Defamation and whistleblower actions
  • Discrimination actions, including those on the basis of age, race, gender, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, religion, and national origin
