Detroit-based Nemeth Burwell P.C. is a boutique employment litigation and labor law firm celebrating 20 years in 2012. It is the largest women-owned law firm in Michigan to exclusively represent management in the prevention, resolution and litigation of labor and employment disputes and boasts a local, national and international client base, including FORTUNE 500 companies.
Nemeth Burwell represents a broad range of employers: union and non-union, private and public, profit and not-for-profit, under 100 employees and over 1,000. Representative clients include a variety of industry and service sectors, such as health care, manufacturing, defense, automotive suppliers, entertainment and gaming, professional service firms, retail, transportation and information technology. On the public sector side, Nemeth Burwell serves municipalities and county governments, school districts, institutions of higher education and large airport authorities. Additionally, members of the legal community come to Nemeth Burwell for representation, with the firm serving attorneys, courts, judges and law firms in employment matters. Commercial law firms also seek out Nemeth Burwell for in-depth expertise in labor and employment law.
The firm provides employment litigation, traditional labor law and management consultation services with a client-friendly fee structure. Representative services include training and prevention, class action lawsuits, harassment, EEOC discrimination charges, ADA compliance, non-compete agreements, Family and Medical Leave Act, whistleblower, collective bargaining, decertification and reductions in force. Additionally, Nemeth Burwell offers mediation services, with select attorneys specifically trained to handle and resolve conflicts and disputes in all civil matters, including employment. Mediation, which often results in a more amicable, lower cost resolution, can be employed prior to the commencement of litigation or after the litigation process has already begun.
Given the decades of employment experience that our attorneys possess, Nemeth Burwell offers clients unparalleled knowledge of labor and employment law. Further, with our diverse private and public sector employer experience, we know that what works in one industry may be disastrous in another. Equally important, we respect our clients' right to be guided by their own business approach and philosophy when it comes to employment matters and their individual work environment. Nemeth Burwell collaborates with our clients to create and implement workplace policies and practices that complement their particular workplace yet are legally sound.
Nemeth Burwell has a collegial atmosphere where clients are "firm clients" and not the sole responsibility of one attorney. In addition to being the best, team-focused approach to providing optimal legal service, the "firm client" approach eliminates unnecessary competition that can negatively impact a firm's culture. Nemeth Burwell continually strives to be a model law firm employer and has received numerous awards for its collaborative culture, including Crain's Detroit Business Cool Places to Work (2011), Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best Places to Work for ten years (most recently in 2011) and Best of Michigan Business from CORP magazine. Firm attorneys have also been recognized for their legal expertise, garnering awards and honors such as Michigan Leaders in the Law, Detroit's Best Barristers, Best Lawyers in America®, Super Lawyers®, Fellow, Litigation Counsel of America (LCA) and prestigious Chambers' rankings.
