Capabilities

Labor and Employment

Employment discrimination class and collective actions, nationwide government enforcement actions and disputes with senior officers threaten the finances of the company, its brand and the reputations of its officers, directors and employees. Our trial lawyers represent companies in a broad array of industries in high profile lawsuits and government investigations.

Our employment and appellate lawyers secured a victory in the Supreme Court in a case that has been recognized as one of the most import employment law decisions in recent years. The senior in-house employment lawyer of a major multinational company recently described Michael Johnston as "one of the best, most experienced employment trial lawyers in the country."

The success of most companies today rests heavily on their trade secrets and confidential information. Yet, purloining that information is easier than ever before. Our employment team includes a number of lawyers with wide-ranging experience drafting and enforcing, through litigation if necessary, agreements to protect trade secrets and confidential information.
