Employment Law

For decades, we have guided both employees and employers through the maze of federal, state, and New York City laws, rules, and regulations relating to all phases of the employer-employee relationship. We have litigated hundreds of employment cases, and negotiated thousands of employment matters.

Employment Negotiations:

Effective negotiation can often avoid costly litigation. We have helped countless employees and employers resolve employment problems short of litigation. Specifically, we have extensive experience in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating:

  • Employment agreements
  • Severance packages
  • Post-employment restrictive covenants
  • Non-Disclosure and confidentiality agreements
  • Intellectual Property Agreements


There are, of course, cases in which amicable resolution is impossible. When that occurs, we have extensive experience in all forms of employment litigation, and are ready, willing, and able to pursue such claims before the appropriate court or other forum.

Employment Discrimination :

We have represented both employees and employers in discrimination claims before state and federal courts and before a wide variety of federal, state, and local human rights agencies (including the New York State Division of Human Rights, the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). The cases we have handled include prosecuting and defending claims of discrimination based on race, color, gender, age, religion, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, national origin, and retaliation pursuant to Title VII, the New York States Human Rights Law, the New York City Human Rights Law, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disability Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act. We have achieved significant victories in such litigation both for employees and employers.
