Our strong transactional and business litigation background supplements the firm’s growing labor and employment practice. The firm’s attorneys provide practical legal advice while counseling and defending employers across a wide range of labor and employment issues, including wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, wage and hour, human resources management and training, safety and health, proprietary rights and workplace privacy.

  • ADA/FMLA Compliance – We successfully resolved lawsuit brought against hotel client in 2015 in the U.S. District Court of Guam involving ADA and FMLA claims.
  • Equal Employment Opportunity – We recently counseled hotel client in responding to EEOC charges of discrimination and retaliation.  In 2013, after four years of litigation, our attorneys successfully obtained dismissal of a whistleblower claim brought against a telecommunications client.
  • Human Resource Management – Our attorneys regularly draft employee handbooks, employment agreements and workplace policies and we frequently advise employers in conducting investigation of employee complaints and fashioning remedial measures
  • Wage & Hour – In 2016, we provided extensive advice and guidance to our clients across various industries regarding possible changes to federal overtime regulations
