Ward Greenberg’s Labor and Employment group has been recognized regularly as a Metropolitan Tier 1 practice by The Best Lawyers in America©.

With skill and experience in matters involving substandard employee performance, workplace harassment, whistleblower claims, and safety and health issues, our attorneys effectively address and minimize potential employer liability, while simultaneously addressing the risk of retaliation claims and reputational injury.

In addition to litigated employment matters, our group has led companies of all sizes through sensitive and highly confidential internal investigations regarding instances of workplace misconduct, and governmental investigations undertaken by various federal and state regulatory agencies. We also regularly provide workplace training to managers and staff, as well as counsel to clients regarding statutory compliance, and assessment of contractual issues including the enforceability of non-competition, non-solicitation, and anti-poaching covenants. Having litigated a litany of lawsuits arising from these covenants, we have a proven track record of providing solid advice which often successfully avoids litigation, and which sets up our clients for a successful litigation outcome when negotiation fails.
