Even the most prepared employer will likely face litigation and the challenges that accompany it. Employees faced with adverse employment actions are often emotional and reactive. Litigation can also result from miscommunication or a misunderstanding between the parties. Regardless, the stakes are high and our clients expect an informed and experienced analysis of the risks, rewards, and costs of litigation, including the human capital costs associated with any particular situation.
