Employment Litigation 

How we help

We partner with our clients to minimize their risk. Even when a client minimizes its risk, lawsuits can happen. When that occurs, you want someone to fight on your behalf. We believe in providing aggressive and ethical representation when clients face litigation.

Harassment & Discrimination:

We understand the emotional and financial impact related to facing discrimination lawsuits. Our attorneys are experienced in representing employers in state and federal courts throughout the West Coast, along with administrative agencies. Litigation requires a legal strategy that is sensitive to the demands of the litigation in the current matter, but also must identify and mitigate future implications that may arise.

Disability & Leave Laws:

Disability and leave laws are becoming ever increasingly more complex, and nuanced. We have helped clients handle all types of disability and leave litigation, including under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Title VII, USERRA, Washington Law Against Discrimination, Oregon Chapter 659A Discrimination, Washington Family Care Act, Washington Paid Sick Leave, Alaska Family Leave Act, Oregon Family Leave Act, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Wage & Hour Lawsuits:

Wage & hour lawsuits have skyrocketed in the last decade. Our attorneys are experienced in defending our clients against misclassification claims, independent contract issues, missed overtime allegations, donning and doffing, and meal & rest period claims.

Class Actions and Collective Actions:

Large-scale class actions have the potential to devastate a business. We have experience representing clients in Washington, Oregon, and California in class actions and collective actions. We understand the potential issues clients face, and help them navigate those issues.
