Many employment law practice groups claim to have significant litigation experience, but few can demonstrate that their litigators actually try cases on a consistent basis. Brownstein’s Employment Group attorneys are effective litigators and business lawyers who have tried countless employment and other types of cases throughout their careers. Our collective experience in the courtroom provides a unique perspective and distinct advantage to companies faced with a wide variety of employment-related claims.
The experience of repeatedly defending claims through trial helps us effectively advise clients on whether particular claims should be resolved or defended. We have developed unique pre-litigation strategies designed to resolve cases at an early stage. At trial, we have successfully defended high-profile cases involving alleged violations of federal and state employment laws, including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act. Our group members also have significant experience pursuing and defending claims for breach of restrictive covenants, misappropriation of trade secrets and other business torts.
Through long-term, collaborative partnerships with our clients, we help develop innovative strategies for resolving workplace issues before they lead to costly litigation. We are adept at drafting employer handbook policies, employment contracts and non-compete and confidentiality agreements. We also provide knowledgeable counsel on how to conduct internal audits and investigations.
