In a pro-active effort to comply with the myriad of local, state and federal laws, we counsel and advise our clients on their day-to-day workplace issues and train management on ways to avoid or successfully defend lawsuits. Our Labor & Employment Group attorneys have extensive experience handling employment matters before administrative agencies, arbitrators and judges. We have successfully compelled arbitration and defended our corporate clients against single, plaintiff and class/collective action plaintiffs. When faced with class or collective actions, the LGP Labor & Employment Group is ready to defend such cases, including opposing class/collective action certification at the early stages of litigation. Our experienced attorneys have successfully thwarted efforts by plaintiff’s attorneys to unethically solicit putative class members nationwide.
The LGP Labor & Employment Group frequently counsels employers on how best to handle internal employment matters in an effort to avoid time consuming and costly lawsuits. We partner with our clients to ensure that they receive practical advice when dealing with one of their largest assets, employees. We also understand that today’s workforce is extremely diverse and have in turn hired diverse attorneys to provide pro-active and strategic counseling, train management and employees (in English and Spanish), conduct internal investigations (in English and Spanish), and conduct employment-related audits where requested.
