Employment Law

SFBBG’s employment law practice group counsels businesses and professionals on a broad spectrum of employment-related matters. Our attorneys draw on extensive expertise and a deep understanding of employment law to provide clients with solutions to complex employment issues.

We work with businesses, executives and human resources personnel to craft workplace policies, procedures and practices designed to ensure compliance with the law without sacrificing the business’ goals and objectives. We help employers navigate difficult workplace employment issues with the goal of preventing disruptive litigation before it begins.

Our attorneys have decades of experience litigating employment-related cases in federal and state courts and before administrative bodies. We litigate discrimination claims, as well as claims involving sexual harassment, wage and hour, the Family & Medical Leave Act, retaliation, whistleblower, trade secrets, fiduciary duty, and claims for breach of employment contracts, including non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements. In every case, the Firm advocates aggressively on our client’s behalf to achieve a successful outcome in a cost-effective manner. Our team of seasoned employment litigators is also well-versed in utilizing alternative dispute resolution, including private mediation and arbitration.
