The Dallas office of McGuireWoods seeks an associate for the Labor & Employment Department.
If litigation proves inevitable, our team is ready to defend clients from federal and state civil rights and antidiscrimination claims, trade secret and employee raiding actions, wage and hour class and collective actions, and whistle-blower and other suits. We also represent employers in a range of administrative proceedings involving charges of discrimination filed with the EEOC and state and local human rights agencies, Department of Labor compliance checks and audits, and administrative wage claims.
McGuireWoods’ clients include local, national, and multinational employers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and nonprofits. With more than 70 lawyers in the United States and Europe, our labor and employment team handles upwards of 4,000 employment-related matters each year. We counsel employers in every aspect of the employer/employee relationship, including federal, state, and international law compliance; traditional labor issues; internal investigations; federal contracting; and executive compensation.
Our depth and experience crosses key areas of employment law, including wage and hour class and collective actions; large portfolios ranging from single-plaintiff statutory claims to systemic class actions across the country; traditional labor work; and OFCCP audits and counseling.
McGuireWoods’ L&E lawyers work with clients proactively to prevent, triage, defend and resolve internal and external workplace disputes, claims and litigation. We collaborate with clients to deliver tailored employment services in the most flexible, efficient manner possible, which includes the use of alternative fee arrangements, value-added billing and retainers.
