Thompson Coburn represents employers in employment discrimination, wrongful discharge, wage and hour, and breach of contract cases, ranging from individual lawsuits to class and collective actions. While we are typically on the defense side of cases, we have also successfully prosecuted numerous suits against former employees who leave to compete, utilizing a number of strategies and techniques to enforce restrictive covenants and breaches of fiduciary duties.
Our emphasis is on winning cases efficiently. To do this, we immediately marshal the facts of all new matters and prepare a preliminary analysis for the client. We collaborate with the client to develop a strategy for winning the case, either by motion or at trial. We are mindful of our clients’ need to contain legal costs, so at all times, we staff each matter appropriately, with the attorney best suited to the particular task.
We handle employment cases in many jurisdictions. In fact, we have defended companies in the District of Columbia and more than 35 states. Our attorneys are ranked in Chambers USA, and several attorneys have been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® for Labor and Employment Litigation.
