Helping Prevent Employment Conflicts

Employment litigation can be costly, time-consuming, and affect overall morale and company reputation. We help businesses avoid litigation through pro-active policy consulting and risk management services.

Often, when disputes are caught early and there is clear policy precedent, all parties can reach an amicable resolution out of court. Our lawyers can aid in this process even when disputes escalate and lawsuits are filed. We will help to try to settle out of court in order to avoid blemishing your business’s reputation.

Employment and Labor Disputes We Handle

We have extensive experience in high-stakes and complex litigation at the state and federal level. We litigate a variety of cases, including those that fall under:

  • Title VII
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Putative class actions
  • Wage and hour collective actions
  • Breach of contract and non-compete agreements
  • Defamation
  • Discrimination and harassment

We have extensive geographic reach as well, and are able to handle multi-district litigation throughout the country. Our experience allows us to simplify discovery, class certification, dispositive motion briefing, and many other facets of complex litigation.

Our lawyers serve as national and regional counsel for a diverse range of clients, from Fortune 500 businesses to state and public entities to small, locally-based businesses.

Why Choose Shaw Cowart LLC for Your Employment Litigation Attorney

We will aggressively represent your company through any employment-related lawsuit. We will be on the lookout for any opportunity to resolve the suit out of court, but are fully prepared to argue before a judge or jury.
