Overview

Our attorneys represent management in labor matters and employment-related litigation, providing counsel on all legal aspects of employer-employee relations.

We represent large and small employers in a broad range of markets and industries in the private, public and nonprofit sectors, and are proud to have earned the trust of industry-leading clients across the country.

Our attorneys are leaders in the practice. We approach every engagement with an eye toward bringing creative solutions, innovative strategies and uncompromising professionalism to the work we do.

The strength of our labor and employment practice is our ability to meet all of our clients’ needs — whether it is handling complex class or collective actions, serving as trial counsel in high-profile litigation, engaging in difficult union negotiations, or arguing appeals. We regularly defend clients in race, age and gender discrimination cases, and we frequently offer advice and counseling on government compliance issues and personnel policies and procedures. Our labor and employment attorneys work cooperatively with colleagues in our Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group to provide our clients with comprehensive assistance in every aspect of the employer-employee relationship.

We know that neither one size nor one approach will fit all circumstances. At Schiff Hardin, we focus on understanding our clients’ business models. We are committed to always work as members of a team with our clients — general counsels, human resources staff and labor relations professionals alike — to provide the most effective legal representation. We are your labor and employment counsel.
