Attorneys

Our attorneys have decades of experience representing both publicly and privately held automobile dealers and local, regional, and nationwide dealer groups. We understand the complex inner workings of the automotive industry (particularly fixed operations) and based on our experience across multiple manufacturer lines, we offer reliable counsel on risk avoidance, as well as defense when litigation arises.

Compliance

We partner with your business to help you avoid costly legal problems. Our attorneys assist clients in the development and implementation of employment policies and procedures. We counsel clients in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, personnel transactions, safety and health, benefit design and plan compliance, as well as, preventative strategies and related training. 

Union Assistance

Our attorneys represent single employers and multi-employer bargaining units across the nation in union representation campaigns. We assist clients in union avoidance, collective bargaining, contract rights administration, unfair labor practices, grievance and arbitration, and wage and hour issues. In light of a new union certification, we negotiate first contracts and help employers develop effective bargaining tactics. 

Litigation

While we counsel clients to avoid litigation, lawsuits can still arise. We defend against claims of discrimination and retaliation filed by employees and former employees. Our attorneys are experienced in handling unfair labor practice cases, complex and class action wage and hour cases, multi-employer plan collection demands, pension and benefit plan eligibility, collection cases, and mediation and arbitration demands.
