About this firm

Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP is a nationwide employment litigation law firm with offices in New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, San Diego, and Nashville. We represent individuals against powerful interests. We act as a private attorney general in support of the private and public good.

Our attorneys have attended the nation's top law schools, clerked for judges throughout the United States, and amassed extensive experience litigating cases that have earned over $1 billion for our clients.

Sanford Heisler Sharp specializes in representing plaintiffs with claims involving employment discrimination, wage and hour violations, predatory lending, whistleblowing, False Claims Act (qui tam), consumer fraud, financial elder abuse, 401(K) (ERISA) matters, actions brought under Dodd Frank, SEC whistleblower matters, and other claims. The firm also has achieved great results in representing executives, attorneys and managers in contract and employment disputes throughout the United States.

Sanford Heisler Sharp has an impressive history of success. Our team of skilled attorneys secured the largest jury award in an employment discrimination case, winning more than $250 million for 7,000 female sales representatives. The firm also achieved a $99 million wage and hour recovery on behalf of pharmaceutical representatives and represented a whistleblower in a $120 million qui tam case against Omnicare.

We know that injustice often harms the people who can least afford it. By handling most of our cases on a contingency fee basis, Sanford Heisler Sharp provides our clients with equal access to legal representation. We level the playing field so that your voice is heard.
