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.

Equally important, our BakerHostetler team works together seamlessly, tapping the experience of more than 90 Labor and Employment lawyers coast to coast, and the broader circle of more than 970 colleagues across the firm who have extensive experience in a full spectrum of areas that affect our business clients.
