Employment litigation is different from other types of commercial disputes. An employment lawsuit can disrupt your work environment and hurt your company’s credibility, not only with your employees but also with the public. It’s also one of the few types of litigation in which the motives of your members of management are at issue.
Constangy’s Employment Litigation Prevention and Defense team has more than 50 attorneys covering a broad geographical area with the ability to work across office lines as needed. The team’s depth and expertise allows them to handle the full range of litigation issues – from routine charges of discrimination to highly complex class action lawsuits. They come to the firm with backgrounds at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other governmental entities, judicial clerkships, and with private practice experience.
We can defend you vigorously — in the courts and before government agencies -- when that is the right thing to do. But, where appropriate, we can also help you find solutions to issues in your workplace that may keep you out of court altogether. We also have a bank of management- and employee-training programs that are available at fixed fees.
Attorneys in our Employment team have represented employers in a wide variety of industries, including the following:
- Health care
- Retail and wholesale sales
- Public utilities
- Sports and entertainment
- Food and restaurants/hotels
Our Employment Litigation Prevention and Defense team publishes a bimonthly periodical, Labor & Employment Insights.
