When employment disputes rise to the level of litigation, they can become highly charged, time-consuming, personal, and potentially costly. We work with clients to contend with the many sophisticated challenges associated with the defense of employment litigation and to aggressively seek the best possible solution in often high-stakes cases, protecting them against financial losses and damage to their reputation.
Our veteran trial lawyers have a wealth of experience defending businesses in employment litigation cases involving a wide range of claims, covering such areas as wage and hour issues, non-compete claims, wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment. Our expertise spans the many laws governing employment issues from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fair Labor Standards Act to the Family and Medical Leave Act and the National Labor Relations Act, and our comprehensive understanding of applicable laws informs our defense, whether it is in court or before a governmental agency, leading to successful settlements and verdicts for our clients.
ThompsonMcMullan attorneys have tried a wide variety of cases to verdict, and have briefed and argued successfully several cases of first impression before the United States Court of Appeals, the United States District Court and the National Labor Relations Board. We also regularly represent clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, and various state agencies and self-regulatory organizations.
