BakerHostetler’s Employment and Labor practice represents employers in all facets and at all stages of employment and labor relations. Our lawyers routinely confront some of the most challenging issues facing employers in the modern workplace, and they bring those experiences to clients both large and small and in a variety of industries.
Our clients value the collaborative, client-centered focus that is the foundation of our approach to achieving successful outcomes, whether in settlement, mediation, or litigation. We continuously consult with our clients on all technical and strategic decision making at every phase of the case. Our lawyers' solutions are aligned with our clients' business objectives. As one client told U.S. News – Best Lawyers® "Best Law Firms" this year, "Over 20 years, I have found this firm to be a very knowledgeable, creative and responsive counsel for labor and employment law issues." (This comment appears on the U.S. News & Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" website at bestlawfirms.usnews.com.)
Equally important, our BakerHostetler team works together seamlessly, tapping the experience of more than 70 Employment and Labor lawyers coast to coast, and the broader circle of nearly 900 colleagues across the firm who have extensive experience in a full spectrum of areas that affect our business clients. We collaborate habitually and continuously, without adding transaction costs, getting more done in fewer hours. It has been said that we operate with a "High degree of responsiveness; a well-run team. Their major strength is institutional knowledge of the industry coupled with prompt personal service at rates that are much lower than comparable big city national firms." – Chambers & Partners interviewee
"The firm is intuitive and proactive, and dedicates the resources and time necessary to help us develop and maintain a positive labor relations environment, while positioning us to prevail when arbitrations or litigations arise."
