Our first goal in defense of claims against our clients is to obtain the facts necessary to provide a foundation for decision making and strategy forward. We work with our clients to analyze the potential risks, potential gains and the associated costs. We evaluate mediation and arbitration options, and look for efficient ways to resolve the dispute quickly, while addressing our clients’ needs and goals. We are always ready, however, to defend our clients and/or pursue actions in all courts and tribunals on employee and employee-related claims, including claims of sexual harassment and discrimination, whistleblower, worker misclassification, wage and hour (Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”)) and unequal pay. We will protect or defend allegations of unfair competition (restrictive covenants) and will aggressively protect our clients from confidential information and trade secret breaches, including seeking expedited emergent applications for injunctive relief to protect our clients’ confidential and proprietary information, trade secrets and intellectual property, or to expeditiously oppose such actions against our clients.
