Practice/Industry Group Overview
The Labor and Employment Practice Group at Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP has extensive depth and breadth of experience in virtually all aspects of management-side workplace law. Our litigators defend individual, class, and collective actions before courts, administrative agencies, and other forums. We have successfully litigated cases throughout the country involving a broad range of workplace and constitutional law issues, particularly cases involving alleged harassment, discrimination, and violations of state and federal wage and hour laws. We also assist employers with training of all types, union avoidance, representation and decertification campaigns, and more. Finally, we often are called on to draft, prosecute, and defend restrictive covenants, including non-competition/non-solicitation agreements, as well as provide advice and other legal assistance in matters involving trade secrets and unfair competition.
While we are proud of our litigation experience and trial record, our primary goal is to keep our clients from having to go to trial in the first place. To that end, we often are able to dispose of cases by dispositive motion. When we believe it is in the client’s best interest to settle a matter, we give that advice as early in the case as possible and work with the client to develop a settlement strategy that addresses their concerns and protects their rights. And because our successful litigation track record is well-known among the plaintiffs’ bar, we often are able to resolve cases on more favorable terms than would otherwise be the case.
Whatever your particular circumstance may be, our first priority in every instance is to deliver the highest quality of legal service to our clients. Whether you choose CSH to defend a workplace discrimination charge or lawsuit, assist with a union matter, enforce a non-compete agreement, or provide counseling or training, we are committed to making your experience with us the best it can be. We realize that a reputation for excellence does not just happen; it must be earned every day. To earn your trust and confidence, the lawyers in the Labor and Employment Practice Group are committed to:
