Litigation is time consuming, disruptive, and expensive.


Strategy is key

Lawsuits can expose construction companies to a crippling amount of monetary liability, as well as potential individual civil and criminal liability for the officers and directors of these companies. We are well aware that employers within the construction industry notoriously face wage and hour claims brought on an individual, class or collective action basis. We stand ready to vigorously defend clients against these claims in a timely and efficient manner, approaching each employment litigation with the upmost professionalism and sensitivity.

We have extensive experience litigating employment claims on behalf of our construction clients in and out of court, administrative proceedings, arbitrations and mediations.

Specifically, we defend employers against:
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Retaliation
  • Wage and hour
  • Misclassification
  • Failure to accommodate or provide leave
  • Breach of contract
  • Defamation
  • Wrongful discharge
  • Pay equity claims brought by applicants, current employees, and former employees


We represent our construction clients in pursuing and defending against statutory and common law claims of unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets, violation of restrictive covenants (such as non-compete and non-solicitation obligations), and intentional interference with business/contractual relations.

We appear regularly in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies such as:
  • N.J. Division on Civil Rights
  • N.Y. Division of Human Rights
  • N.Y.C. Commission on Human Rights
  • N.Y.C. Department of Consumer and Worker Protection
  • U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Various state and federal Departments of Labor
  • U.S. Department of Justice
  • Attorneys General’s offices
