Biography

Thomas D. Rees heads the firm’s Litigation and Employment Practice. He focuses his practice primarily on employment law and private education law. In the employment area, Tom represents employers in litigations over employment terminations; restrictive covenants, trade secrets, and other employee mobility issues; employment discrimination and sexual harassment matters; employment contract disputes; and defamation and privacy related matters. Tom also serves employers in a wide variety of non-litigation matters, including contract negotiation, preparation of policies and procedures, and hiring and termination. These services help employers to avoid and resolve disputes without resorting to the courtroom.

In the education area, Tom represents a number of independent schools in the Philadelphia area, handling employment, student discipline, contract, and governance matters. Tom also handles complex litigation and dispute resolution in the areas of land use and zoning law and government regulation.

Tom serves as an employment arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association. He often speaks on employment and education law topics before Bar Association and private industry groups.

    I've served on at least one committee with Tom Rees and, over the years, have referred employment cases to him when I was in private practice and had conflicts or was too busy to take on another case. I think highly of his legal ability, consider him to be an ethical attorney, and recommended that my associate get a job with him after I left Pennsylvania to accept a job in another state.
