Human Resources


The American workplace has undergone revolutionary changes in recent years. Old assumptions about career paths and corporate continuity have been replaced by the realities of global competition, technological change, and two-income households. At the same time, governments have imposed a rapidly evolving array of laws and regulations that directly or indirectly impact the employer/employee relationship. As a result, both private companies and public bodies require experienced outside counsel to assist them in developing and preserving a productive, thriving workplace.

Our attorneys represent management in both the private and public sector in all aspects of labor and employment law, including counseling and compliance, employment litigation, and union-related matters. We also offer expertise in the area of employee benefits, including plan design, drafting and review of plans, multi-employer plan representation, bargaining with unions, and benefits-related litigation.
