Employment LitigationOur employment litigators have extensive experience representing employers and employees in all aspects of employment litigation matters in federal and state courts, including:
- Breach of contract matters (employment agreements, executive compensation, confidentiality and severance agreements)
- Discrimination claims
- Breaches/enforcement of restrictive covenants (non-competition, non-solicitation agreements)
- Wrongful and constructive termination
- Labor law violations
- Tortious interference
We have been counsel in class action and multiple-plaintiff cases arising from gender and age discrimination, with very successful outcomes. Recently, the Firm successfully represented a large class of women officers at an insurance brokerage firm in a gender discrimination case pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and secured an $8.5 million settlement on behalf of the class.
We also have represented clients in connection with whistleblower claims under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the federal False Claims Act and federal and state tax whistleblower statutes.
