Employment Litigation and Class Actions


When required, our team provides aggressive defense of discrimination claims and actions brought under wage and hour laws such as the Fair Labor Standard Act or under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Class and collective employment actions, including hybrid lawsuits involving both opt-out and opt-in claims, raise the stakes exponentially for employers. They are inherently more complicated in virtually every phase of litigation, including any settlement. As a result, class and collective employment actions require particular expertise and experience to successfully defend. Our attorneys have been on the front lines of this kind of litigation in federal and state courts and arbitrations across the country, for a wide variety of industries and business sectors. We have a proven track record of managing the burden of electronic discovery that class/collective action plaintiffs often attempt to exploit, and we work with our clients to avoid class and collective actions altogether through pre-litigation waivers of these procedural mechanisms.
