When litigation arises or becomes necessary, our depth and breadth of knowledge assists us in guiding our clients through the complex process. Our extensive experience of representing clients nationwide in federal and state courts and before various administrative agencies is widely recognized. Further, our lawyers are skilled in alternative dispute resolution techniques. When it is in the client’s best interest, we try to avoid litigation through the use of mediation, arbitration and other negotiation techniques.
Litigation can result in tremendous expense and exposure for an employer. As a result, we train and counsel our clients to prevent and avoid unnecessary litigation or labor disputes involving labor and employment issues. To assist our clients in preventing and avoiding these potential legal problems, all of our attorneys are trained to advise clients of the law and, more importantly, offer litigation alternatives that best meet our clients’ objectives. Further, at no expense to our clients, we proactively send out client alerts and newsletters on labor and employment issues. In addition, we conduct free seminars for our clients regarding important labor and employment topics on a regular basis.
Centuries of Aggregate Labor Experience
Prior to joining McMahon Berger, many of our attorneys worked directly for the National Labor Relations Board. This experience provided them with the unique ability to analyze labor issues from the Board’s perspective, which provides immeasurable assistance in resolving or bringing a labor issue to closure. By taking this knowledge and applying it to our clients’ needs and objectives, we have been able to effectively and efficiently resolve unfair labor practice charges, petitions for certification or decertification, and other matters. In addition, we have negotiated numerous collective bargaining agreements for clients in various industries over the years. Further, we have represented clients in thousands of arbitrations. There is virtually no problem we have not faced in our centuries of aggregate experience.
