As an employer, you’re juggling a range of economic, industry and regulatory challenges. With our depth of experience and knowledge, we can help you navigate even the most complex workplace issues. We’ll ensure you mitigate risk and implement effective workplace strategies, wherever you operate.

Workplace changes governed by labor and employment laws are obliging employers to address the future of work. From privacy to pay equity to worker health and safety, the challenges are widespread.

Our lawyers provide strategic advice to clients around the world on the full range of labor and employment matters. From day-to-day issues, such as non-competes, pay, hiring or promotions, implementation of policies, terminations and reductions in force, to governmental investigations and audits, to high-stakes litigation, we can support you.

We take a proactive counseling approach, helping you recognize compliance issues and keeping litigation avoidance and risk mitigation top of mind. We help you implement preventive measures to minimize exposure and, where appropriate, resolve employment matters efficiently and privately.

Clients turn to us for advice on their most critical projects. We guide clients through their largest and most complex transactions and transformational projects, including spinoffs, acquisitions and global restructurings.

We can also guide you through the complexities of employment opportunity laws, diversity and inclusion, workplace equality, talent and mobility issues, immigration and more.
