Practice/Industry Group Overview
Our representation of more than three dozen of the most prominent local and national labor unions has made us the preeminent union-side labor law firm in New York. We represent unions in virtually every industry--health care, construction, transportation, newspaper publishing, package delivery, hospitality, communications, distribution, manufacturing and retail food--as well as such public sector unions as fire fighters, police officers and teachers.
Working closely with both our government relations and our employment practice and, if need be, our litigation team, our labor law group provides our clients with the experience and negotiating skills necessary to navigate difficult and often frustrating political, management and legislative issues.
Our clients tap into a vast reservoir of expertise. Our team of labor attorneys includes a former New York City deputy mayor for labor relations, a New York State commissioner of labor and others from the top echelons of state and federal government.
Our labor law attorneys, frequently sought for their expert commentary, have been interviewed by such publications as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and have appeared on national television and radio.
