    Litigation

    [/av_textblock] [/av_three_fourth][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock] Our litigation attorneys have extensive trial and appellate experience representing corporate clients and individuals in a wide array of complex commercial disputes, including issues of securities law, breach of contract, bankruptcy, trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, construction, employment, intellectual property, partnership disputes and trust disputes. Central to our litigation philosophy is the recognition that the objectives of our clients vary from case to case, and that our success turns on our ability to dynamically and individually tailor our approach to meet each client’s unique objectives. [/av_textblock] [/av_two_fifth][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock ] Regardless of the client’s specific goals, we believe that obtaining counsel with significant trial experience is essential, insofar as a credible threat of effective trial advocacy assists in achieving objectives as diverse as obtaining a pre-litigation settlement to positioning the case for successful dispositive motion practice to, of course, obtaining a judgment after trial. Each of our litigation partners has extensive trial experience and our attorneys have served as counsel of record in trials, evidentiary hearings, and arbitrations throughout the country. We frequently represent both defendants and corporate plaintiffs, and we believe that our experience in both prosecuting and defending against civil suits enhances our ability to anticipate the strategies of opposing parties, and our overall effectiveness in serving our clients.

    Labor & Employment

    [/av_textblock] [/av_one_full][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock] With expertise and experience in all areas of labor and employment law, Folger Levin offers comprehensive services to meet the legal needs of employers. Our practice embraces employment litigation, preventive counseling, traditional labor law, and employment-related business issues. As litigators, our attorneys have successfully defended Title VII, wage and hour, ERISA and WARN Act class actions as well as discrimination lawsuits, wrongful termination claims, and claims involving the use of intellectual property and trade secrets by former employees. We have also handled hundreds of charges filed with state, federal and municipal agencies. Recognizing that our clients are often best served by avoiding litigation altogether, we advise clients on a preventive basis, providing strategic counseling on employment issues and laws, reviewing personnel policies and employee handbooks, conducting seminars and legal audits, planning for reductions in force and layoffs (including WARN compliance), and advising clients on the enforceability of non-competition and nondisclosure agreements. [/av_textblock] [/av_two_fifth][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock] We are experts in traditional labor law. We assist employers in all aspects of traditional labor-management issues, including union organizing campaigns, contract negotiations, strike planning, grievances and arbitrations, union decertification petitions, and proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board. Teaming with our business attorneys, we counsel clients on employment-related business issues, including preparing and negotiating employment and independent contractor agreements, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, employee confidentiality agreements, executive compensation agreements, and stock option and related plans.
