Alston & Bird’s Labor & Employment Group has extensive experience in all areas of labor and employment litigation and counseling. We defend class and collective actions; defend and prosecute claims of unfair competition and misappropriation of trade secrets; assist clients in post-crisis multi-agency government investigations; and negotiate against as well as fight labor unions. We have been at the forefront of developing and enforcing employment arbitration agreements and class-action waivers in some of the most challenging jurisdictions.
Our team includes trial lawyers who handle some of the most complex and sensitive matters for our clients. We litigate across the country, and we value our reputation as effective and trusted advocates. We are able to leverage our extensive litigation experience to provide practical, preventative solutions to our clients, from solving specific problems to developing comprehensive compliance programs. We regularly bring to bear the strength and expertise of Alston & Bird lawyers in other practice areas when a matter involves complex legal issues that require an interdisciplinary solution, including some of the nation’s legal thought leaders in the fields of intellectual property, criminal defense, securities, environmental law, data privacy and legislative advocacy.
