Every business entity, large or small, faces employment issues.  However, contentious and high-profile employment disputes are big business. These can develop into matters of significant consequence affecting a company’s operations, reputation, and bottom line.  McKool Smith’s litigators understand these issues from every angle—the practical components, corporate bylaws and structure, and the legal rights and responsibilities of all parties.  Regardless of the complexities, our lawyers zero in on the important aspects, identify pressure points, develop an early strategic focus, and execute that strategy through resolution. 

Drawing on decades of experience, our litigators have represented individuals and businesses in sophisticated employment litigation matters, across industries and sectors.  We provide our clients with thoughtful and aggressive advocacy in navigating discrimination, retaliation and harassment claims as well as in ligation involving business torts, partnership disputes, fiduciary obligations, shareholder derivative actions, ERISA claims, and contracts or employment agreements.   

Our lawyers also initiate and defend claims over trade secrets, unfair competition, covenants not to compete, duty of loyalty, and other issues related to transitioning key employees. In addition, we develop confidentiality agreements, non-solicitation agreements, privacy policies, and systems to prevent unwanted disclosure of confidential information.

We manage every aspect of the dispute resolution while providing individualized attention.  In courts across the country, our lawyers have obtained dismissals of claims and favorable multimillion dollar settlements, judgments, and verdicts.  We are poised to aggressively protect our clients’ employment interests including their reputation, culture, and/or overall business objectives.
