Employment Litigation

LimNexus employment attorneys are trusted by Fortune 500 companies, multinational corporations, mid-sized businesses, and governmental entities. We are ever-mindful of our clients’ business considerations and reputational issues that arise from employment matters. Our employment practice team has talented and highly experienced litigators and trial attorneys with a track record of obtaining favorable results. We represent employers and managers in a wide variety of labor and employment litigation including claims for:

  • Discrimination: Disability, Race, National Origin, Gender, Religion, Marital Status
  • Harassment and Sexual Harassment
  • Retaliation and Wrongful Termination
  • Wage and Hour: Overtime, Meal and Rest Breaks, Misclassification
  • Accommodations, and Medical and Family Leaves
  • Arbitrations and Mediations
  • Labor Code sections 132(a), 4453, 1102.5

We believe that early and candid case assessments are essential for effectively handling employment cases. We partner with our clients to reach a consensus regarding the appropriate approach and strategy to obtain the best possible outcome. This assessment process is ongoing during the life of the case, and the case may move from one track to another depending on case developments.

Our goal is to reduce the exposure to our clients, including the financial risk and expense of defending litigation, and potential branding and public relations implications, by resolving appropriate cases by settlement or mediation when reasonably possible. If, however, resolution is not practicable, our employment practice team has the acumen and experience to deliver favorable outcomes by dispositive motions and at jury trials. A representative list of results obtained by our attorneys during the course of their careers at LimNexus and prior law firms is below:
