Labor Crisis Management

Work stoppages like strikes and picketing can significantly impact your company, whether you’re a small, local, or multinational corporation. They can negatively affect your ability to provide certain services to your customers, damage your public reputation, and much, much more. 

The professionals at McMahon Berger can help. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, our crisis management firm includes a team of expert labor lawyers who specialize in helping companies throughout the United States minimize the impact of work stoppages while working hard to bring strikes and picketing to an end as quickly as possible.


Strikes and picketing can take many forms. Some, like wildcat strikes, are illegal, while other types like unfair labor practice strikes are considered legal under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). For companies with a non-union workforce, there’s still a chance your employees could organize and strike. 

Regardless of your company size, union status, etc., we can help. Our expert labor attorneys will work together with you to get employees back to work as soon as possible. Because these kinds of work stoppages come with serious financial consequences, we approach every client with the kind of urgency to find a workable solution quickly.


When picketing and other work stoppages happen, the most important objective is to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible. As a respected crisis management firm, we offer services including, but not limited to:

  • Negotiating an end to work stoppages
  • Establishing a reserve gate system to end picketing
