Employment Law & Litigation

Employment Law & Litigation

As employers quickly come to realize, there is nothing straightforward about employment law. Executives and managers face the daunting challenge of complying with dozens of highly complicated, often intersecting laws that regulate every aspect of their employee relationships.

Organizations both public and private need experienced guidance to sort through this legal thicket, understand the laws that apply, and develop appropriate practices and procedures. Equally important, they need a firm that can step up and defend them effectively against civil rights and employment claims when they occur.

The Litigation Difference

This is the type of comprehensive representation that Allen & Gooch is ideally suited to provide. Every member of our employment law team is an experienced litigator. That means each team member can address the multiple theories of liability that are often asserted in workplace lawsuits and advance time-tested strategies to refute them, whether through arbitration, negotiation, or litigation.

Actionable Advice

In addition, the insights our attorneys gain as active litigators increase the practical value of the counsel they offer. Allen & Gooch attorneys can do more than interpret the law. After observing hundreds of plaintiffs in action, they can advise clients on the consequences of their business decisions, helping them balance the risks of litigation against the necessity of realizing their business goals.
