Meeting and rethinking the modern workplace

The world of work and the workplace are changing at lightning speed. Growing customer demands, new technologies and evolving employee expectations are having a tremendous impact on all organizations. Employees are demanding more flexibility, a reconfigured work-life balance and fair and transparent compensation and benefits.

A legal team built on collaboration

Crowell’s Labor and Employment team helps clients build and manage the workforce of the future. Leading global companies have turned to us to help them respond to the dynamic challenges of navigating employment laws throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Working with industry leaders in technology, aerospace, retail, and professional services, we advise on complex matters, including pay equity analyses and related reporting, recruiting practices involving artificial intelligence, and managing a remote workforce.

We conduct highly sensitive investigations and litigate complex class action matters. We also counsel several leading universities, helping to assess and resolve complex employment issues that arise in the higher-education setting. We also have deeply-rooted client relationships in the non-profit sector, working with organizations on the full range of employment law compliance matters as well as individual plaintiff and class action litigation.

Clients benefit from the collective experience of our 40 plus lawyer team, including prior service at key government agencies, proven complex litigation and investigation successes, our leading-edge pay equity practice, and collaboration with the firm’s wealth of highly-skilled legal professionals in related disciplines. As a result, clients get creative and effective business solutions that can help win the battle for talent, ensure compliance with applicable laws, support and navigate global expansion, and protect a company's brand.
