Murtha Cullina’s Labor & Employment practice focuses on providing first-rate representation of our clients in employment litigation and sophisticated advice and counsel on a range of employment issues.
Our Labor & Employment practice represents clients across industries and throughout the northeast. We stay on top of trends and write extensively on issues that impact our clients and their businesses. Our client alerts, Employment Law Perspectives Blog, New York Employment Attorney Blog, seminars and webinars keep clients informed and prepared to face the ever-changing landscape in employment law.
Our partners’ extensive litigation and trial experience informs the advice and counsel we offer our clients on a day-to-day basis. Our focus is on liability avoidance, but if our clients are involved in an administrative claim or litigation, we stand ready to defend them vigorously. We practice in state and federal courts and administrative agencies. Our litigation, administrative, and counseling experience encompasses discrimination claims, including but not limited to disability, pregnancy, sexual harassment, race, and all categories protected by law, Family Medical Leave Act, wage and hour, restrictive covenants and related business torts. We also provide representation of clients in Title IX claims and investigations.
Our clients include small privately held companies, large publicly traded corporations, tax-exempt organizations and public sector entities. We represent clients in a wide range of industries and sectors, including education (colleges, universities and independent schools), health care, financial services, retail, food and beverage, transportation services, energy, and manufacturing.
