We believe that the law can still be an honorable profession, and that intelligence, preparation and knowledge of the law achieve better and more cost-effective results than abusive gamesmanship. We are dedicated to practicing law at the highest standards, with respect not only for our clients, but also for our profession.
We believe your attorney should be your partner. We take the time to understand our clients' objectives and develop an approach to the representation specifically tailored to achieve them. We take the time to learn about the operations of our business clients, and we encourage them to share their business philosophies with us.
Our clients range from national and international corporations (including two Fortune 50 companies) to new, entrepreneurial companies and individuals. We are proud to represent both individuals and corporations in employment-related matters.
We represent corporate clients in a broad range of matters, including employment matters as well as general litigation. We are employment counsel to a multinational pharmaceutical testing company. We provide both advice and counseling, as well as litigation services, related to all aspects of labor and employment law, including discrimination, workplace defamation, wage and benefits claims, non-compete provisions and alleged theft of trade secrets, and compliance with all applicable federal, state and local employment laws. We have developed and implemented a nationwide drug-testing program for another major corporation, and provide counseling to ensure continued compliance with the varying federal, state and local laws in that regard. Our corporate clients also include major health care providers and their patients in litigation against health insurance companies for non-payment of major claims.
Our individual clients typically are executive-level employees. Our work for these clients ranges from drafting and negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements, to litigation over a wide variety of employment claims, including discrimination, workplace defamation, benefits issues, non-compete and trade secret issues, and claims under the qui tam and anti-retaliation provisions of the False Claims Act. A substantial number of our individual clients are physicians and other health care professionals. We also provide employment-related services to several law firms, and have represented attorneys in claims against their employers.
We also engage in a wide variety of general commercial litigation, including breach of contract, fraud and other litigation.
We are especially gratified that many of our clients are referred to us by other attorneys, including former opposing counsel.
