Employment & ERISA Litigation
Graydon litigators have defended clients in all kinds of employment disputes, including those involving wrongful termination, employment discrimination, intentional torts, whistle-blowing, restrictive covenants, workers’ compensation, and wage-and-hour issues. We have successfully handled cases in state and federal courts and municipal, state, and federal administrative agencies.
Our employment-litigation clients range from closely-held businesses to large, publicly-traded corporations. In every case, we focus on our client’s business goals in order to develop, at the outset of the case, a litigation strategy that will advance those goals, whether through a winning jury verdict, an advantageous settlement, or a creative resolution through mediation or other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) avenues. We also help clients find ways to avoid litigation in the first place. When we try cases, we understand that being the best-prepared lawyers in the courtroom is a key to success. And our goal is to win.
We have broad experience defending employee benefit plans and their sponsors, administrators, fiduciaries, and insurers, from every kind of alleged ERISA violation, including claims for breach of fiduciary duty, wrongful denial of benefits, failure to provide plan information, and retaliation and interference with benefits. And we have prosecuted and defended claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, professional negligence, and related claims, brought by and against service providers to ERISA-covered plans, such as third-party administrators, plan marketing agents, professional advisors, and reinsurers.
Graydon’s experienced employment litigators apply their expertise to achieve successful, cost-effective results for the firm’s clients.
