Practice/Industry Group Overview

Employment Law

The Employment lawyers at Meyer Suozzi are skilled in handling problems that involve complex human relations issues and legal questions. Our in-depth knowledge and road experience enable us to find creative solutions to difficult employment issues which often are emotionally charged.

Our goal is to achieve cost-effective resolutions that meet our clients' objectives. When negotiated resolution is not possible, we vigorously pursue those objectives through ediation, administrative proceedings and litigation.

The firm provides counsel on a full spectrum of employment law related issues, engages in all aspects of employment-related litigation before state and federal courts and dministrative agencies, and regularly handles mediations and arbitrations. As recognized leaders in this field, we frequently are asked by the media and professional rganizations to comment on such topics as workplace discrimination and sexual harassment.
