Litigation of Employment Disputes

Fisher & Phillips attorneys represent employers before all federal and state courts, commissions and administrative agencies. Clients benefit from our attorneys' extensive experience in handling jury trials, complex class action litigation, employee lawsuits, unfair labor practice charges and compliance actions by various government agencies, whistleblower claims and proceedings before the U.S. Department of Labor as well as matters before private arbitrators. We also prosecute and defend trade secrets and unfair competition lawsuits. In every case we litigate, our client's business goals are our foremost objective. Our attorneys work efficiently, and with a focus on using the litigation process as a means of achieving a solution to your business problem rather than as an end unto itself. We always look for an opportunity for an early termination of a lawsuit via motions to dismiss or for summary judgment, and we use alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation and arbitration wherever it makes sense to do so.
