Practice Groups

Employment Litigation/Advice

From Fortune 500 Companies to non-profit organizations, and every type of employer in between, we provide practical advice and seasoned representation in all matters of employment law. With more than two decades of experience spanning both the state and federal courts, we navigate non-compete disputes, whistleblower claims, discrimination and harassment complaints, wage and hour disagreements, Employee Retirement Income Security Act litigation, and more.

Beyond the courtroom, we help employers draft employee policies, negotiate separation agreements, conduct internal employment investigations, and provide important training designed to keep clients up to date on changes in employment law. Some recent successes include representation of a health care system client facing defamation charges and a local school fighting a wrongful-discharge claim. We regularly win summary judgments in our clients’ favor in Title VII, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA) cases. We also defend many companies against EEOC/MDHR charges, regularly obtaining dismissals with no probable cause.
