Wage and hour dispute litigation

Wage and hour disputes can be incredibly costly for employers, particularly if the alleged misconduct occurred years or even decades ago and involves a large number of employees.

Regulatory and immigration issues

The complexity of state and federal immigration laws is one of the biggest obstacles to employment in the United States. We represent employers facing litigation over immigration issues, such as I-9 compliance and employment and investor visas, and we defend companies against allegations of unlawful immigration and hiring practices.
