Experience

Discrimination Defense

We successfully defended a large aviation ground handling service company against claims of violation of the ADA and the FMLA—garnering summary judgment in their favor.

Discrimination Defense

We successfully defended a regional hotel chain against administrative claims of ADA and MHRA disability discrimination.

Former Employee’s Defamation Claim

After a national telecommunications company was sued for slander per se by a former employee, the firm's motion to dismiss was granted resulting in the dismissal of the claim.

Wage & Hour

Forcing the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to provide clarity as to exemptions under state wage and hour laws, we successfully achieved summary judgment in a class action brought against a national explosives company.
