Employment Law Representing Management Interests

With employment attorneys in our 10 offices, the Employment Law Section is led by Kevin Barreca (metro-New Orleans), Elizabeth Blanco (Tampa), and David Clouston (Dallas), with guidance from our Senior Partner, David Israel (metro-New Orleans). 

On a nationwide basis, we defend companies that are in litigation, being investigated by regulatory agencies, or need assistance with internal investigations regarding all types of employment issues, employment discrimination claims, and alleged infringement of employee rights. We work with all employment practice insurance carriers. 

Our attorneys appear nationwide in federal and state courts and all federal and state regulatory agencies and regularly appear before: 

We are your “one-stop shop” for labor and employment questions, problems, advice, litigation, or regulatory investigations! 

Litigation & Regulatory Investigation Staffing

Should you be sued or are the subject of a regulatory complaint, we staff cases, charges of discrimination, and investigations based on location, relationships, and expertise. In those states where we have an office, matters filed in that state are placed with that office. 

We always consider whether a particular attorney has a strong working relationship with plaintiff’s counsel or the federal or state agency office or investigator. Specialized attorney expertise factors into our matter assignment decisions. 

While all our employment attorneys are familiar with the various employment-related statutes and applicable law, an attorney with specialized experience may join the team to guide you through complex issues and provide an added edge to your defense.

Day-to-Day Advice and HR Assistance

A critical part of our practice is providing preventive, proactive, problem-solving advice that is practical. 

Through regularly scheduled client calls with our Employment Compliance Partner Program, seminars, and consulting, we help clients solve employment-related issues. 

The result: clients avoid unnecessary and expensive regulatory investigations and litigation. We have developed specialized employment expertise representing call centers nationwide and the myriad of laws and regulations that affect these employees.
