Litigating for Employers

Our employment and labor attorneys are skilled and aggressive litigators.

We represent clients in the full range of employment-related litigation matters, including discrimination, sexual harassment, breach of employment or non-competition agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets, defamation, tortious interference with contract and wrongful discharge.

We litigate in federal and state trial and appellate courts in Minnesota and around the country.
