For nearly 30 years, Barlow, Kobata & Denis LLP has specialized in employment and labor law, representing employers and management in Los Angeles and Chicago, with offices located in both cities. Our firm has recently expanded its practice to include insurance coverage and commercial defense litigation. Our firm services clients of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies with multiple locations to smaller regional employers.
Our attorneys have expertise in all aspects of employment and labor law. Their emphasis is on business planning, litigation avoidance, defending employers before state and federal administrative agencies and in state and federal court litigation, and labor relations planning, including collective bargaining. In addition, our attorneys frequently participate in seminars and in-house training programs and have written extensively regarding employment and labor law issues, as noted in the partner biographies on the Los Angeles and Chicago pages of our website.
