Our firm has represented publicly traded corporations, privately held businesses, and other employers in a wide range of class action claims alleging employment discrimination, violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) wage and hour laws, and other labor and employment disputes.

While our experienced litigators are well prepared to take virtually any matter to trial, we also recognize that a number of steps can be taken to prevent disputes from arising at all and, when they do, to negotiate favorable settlements that minimize costs and negative publicity. For example, in the area of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance, we regularly conduct privileged audits and data analyses to determine whether statistically significant disparities exist for protected groups in the areas of compensation, promotions, and performance evaluations.

When class action litigation threatens or is imminent, we draw on our broad experience in oppositions to certification, notice campaigns, class discovery, motions, mediation, and settlement negotiations. We have an extensive network of outside experts whose testimony can provide critical, credible support to our clients' cases. Understanding that costs can be significant in class action litigation, we partner with our clients to develop creative fee arrangements that align our interests with those we serve.
