Representation For Individuals
BLG represents individuals dealing with workplace discrimination, severance and contract negotiations in employment, labor, commercial and education law matters. In these matters, individuals often find themselves at a great disadvantage when they seek to protect their legal rights against large companies with full legal teams.
Below we’ve listed particular areas of workplace law that we often handle for individuals.
Negotiations, Agency or Court Representation
BLG handles discrimination and harassment claims in every forum. We have experience practicing in the federal and state courts, and in all of the administrative agencies which enforce laws against discrimination. We have also successfully resolved many matters for our clients without incurring the substantial hours and costs that administrative proceedings and court practice became necessary. BLG seriously believes in the importance of a workplace free from discrimination, and we will fight to protect you and your rights.
Executive Contracts and Non-Compete Agreements
BLG can review your severance package to make sure that it is fair and that you are foregoing important rights. We can also work with you to negotiate a better executive contract, and to make sure that you are confident and comfortable with the agreement you sign.
