The Spectrum of State and Federal Labor and Employment Law
Cook Brown advises employers on the entire spectrum of state and federal labor and employment law governing the workplace.
Our record of success in the most challenging corners of labor and employment law, including negotiating collective bargaining agreements, opposing claims of withdrawal liability, and responding to harassment, discrimination, and wage and hour class actions, sets Cook Brown apart. For more than three decades we have represented employer interests and guided employers through tumultuous times on the compliance front.
The keys to this success? First, Cook Brown understands that employers have to maintain a productive workplace — free of the distractions of litigation, disputes and claims. This means we draft and review personnel policies, prepare and update handbooks, as well as provide comprehensive harassment prevention and other trainings.
Cook Brown also works with employers to resolve and overcome workplace challenges — whether an organizing drive, a complaint of discrimination, or the handling of complex accommodation demands.
When litigation arises, Cook Brown works closely with employers to aggressively oppose the claim. Our attorneys develop a strategic defense plan, unique to each case, and appropriate for the client’s budget and objectives. Cook Brown’s expertise — in both traditional labor law and employment claims — has made the critical difference for employers. Whether at trial, arbitration, or administrative hearings, Cook Brown is a powerful ally.
