A number of veteran litigators at Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah started out as labor attorneys. Since then, SFMS lawyers have represented a wide range of clients, including labor organizations, private employers, public employers, employee plaintiff groups and individual employees.
The employment law experience of SFMS attorneys runs the gamut, as we have offices across the United States and litigate employment law matters for plaintiffs and defendants nationwide, in both federal and state courts. Following are some of the legal matters on which SFMS lawyers provide representation and counsel:
- Occupational health and safety
- International immigration and employment
- Wage and hour violations
- Non-compete agreements
- Workplace discrimination
- Wrongful termination
- Class action lawsuits
- Whistleblower claims
- Intellectual property disputes
- Securities regulation
Whether you are an employer facing an investigation of regulatory compliance, or you're an individual employee with a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an attorney with in-depth experience in employment law can advise you of your legal options and develop a strategy for protecting your rights.
With an understanding of the significant cost of litigation, the attorneys of SFMS often use methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to negotiate, mediate and arbitrate for positive results. When ADR is not a viable option, the lawyers of SFMS are prepared to litigate.
