Bob Dezort is a partner in the Cleveland office.

Bob provides practical solutions to employers. For more than 20 years, he has helped his clients – ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small family-owned and operated businesses – resolve wrongful discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, trade secrets and non-competition claims, and other employment lawsuits, in and out of the courtroom. In addition, Bob has particular experience helping employers establish comprehensive risk management programs to protect them against workplace disputes, and to minimize the risks of run-away jury verdicts if a lawsuit cannot be avoided.

Bob also has significant traditional labor law experience representing companies in union organizing campaigns, unfair labor practice charges, and labor arbitrations.
