A senior employment and litigation attorney, Michael Freimann has more than 20 years of experience. When advising clients, Michael draws on his unique background, which includes a decade of in-house experience, an extensive trial and litigation record, expertise as a traditional labor law attorney and numerous years as a military attorney. Michael continues to serve his country as an officer in the United States Air Force.

As a former assistant general counsel for a Fortune 200 company with more than 70,000 employees and multiple subsidiaries, Michael understands and appreciates both the legal and business needs of his clients. He advises his clients on a full spectrum of employment and commercial disputes. Michael draws on his in-house experience to strategize with his clients and create favorable solutions and outcomes.
