Messerli Kramer’s Employment Litigation attorneys work with clients to find the best alternatives for cost-effective solutions and timely resolutions to employment disputes. When an employment matter rises to the level where litigation is unavoidable, our experienced litigators represent employers in state and federal courts as well as arbitrations and agency proceedings. We also represent clients in responding to inquiries from the EEOC, Department of Labor, National Labor Relations Board, State Departments of Human Rights and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Our approach to employment litigation is to mitigate risk for employers in order to avoid stepping inside the courtroom. We work with employers of all sizes to develop policies, procedures and programs that comply with state and federal laws and create a supportive work environment for their employee base. See Employment Law & Counseling for more information.
