The Faegre Baker Daniels labor and employment practice features more than 80 lawyers who cover the spectrum of issues affecting the employment relationship, employee mobility, compensation and benefits. We help employers navigate complex workforce issues and advise product and service providers operating in the retirement and compensation markets.
We are not generalists. We have the size and depth to support specialization in key areas of employment and benefits law. We leverage our knowledge by collaborating with each other to ensure that clients receive integrated, strategic representation from the lawyer or team of lawyers who can most effectively assist them.
When issues arise, you need to respond quickly. Solving difficult labor and employment legal problems requires skill and expertise. We have the background and experience to meet those most challenging issues in a timely fashion.
Whether clients' needs involve litigation, organized labor, employee benefits, executive compensation, enforcement of restrictive covenants, immigration or employment issues related to mergers and acquisitions, we provide legal advice that is based on their business objectives. We also help clients understand applicable laws, so they can mitigate risk and move forward with business goals.
Our ability is reflected in the diverse number of clients who rely on us for their important employment matters. We represent national, regional and local businesses. We understand the needs of clients vary by the type of enterprise because we work with a range of private sector businesses, including manufacturing, health care, service, retail, logistics, construction, child care and others. Our group also solves employment issues for public sector clients.
We defend employment litigation in federal and state courts and advocate before fair employment law practices agencies. Our experience includes extensive jury trial and class action representation.
Avoiding claims is on equal footing to defense. On a daily basis, our professionals provide personnel advice and client counseling on a variety of matters. We provide guidance on policies, supervisor skill set training, workforce reductions, employment contracts and restrictive covenants, workplace safety and substance abuse issues, disability accommodation, leaves of absence, discipline and termination, and all personnel issues.
Through our offices in the United States, Europe and China — along with our international network of local counsel — we assist multinational clients with employment-related legal matters anywhere in the world.
