At Holland & Hart, we focus on obtaining favorable results for each and every client. When litigating employment disputes, we work closely with each client to define and obtain the client’s desired outcome while managing the cost of reaching that outcome and reducing the distractions to business operations. We evaluate cases up front to assess whether full-blown litigation is warranted or if mediation or arbitration would produce the optimum resolution of the dispute. Because of our significant experience handling employment matters in virtually every forum, including federal and state courts, appellate courts, administrative agencies, regulatory hearings, and alternative dispute resolution settings, we offer efficient and effective representation that gets results.
Employers facing allegations of discrimination or harassment need a tenacious and knowledgeable attorney. Our labor and employment lawyers exclusively represent employers. We know how to challenge the underlying presumptions of discrimination and harassment claims, the questions to ask to expose the weaknesses of an allegation, and the themes that juries and judges have found persuasive. We bring years of experience defending discrimination and harassment claims involving every protected class, including the evolving discrimination theories based on sexual orientation, mixed motive, and “cat’s paw” allegations. We also regularly defend retaliation and whistleblower claims that often go to trial even when the underlying discrimination or harassment claim is dismissed.
