Overview Press Room

Overview

Our Labor-Management Relations Group, with its distinguished history of representing management in the private, not-for-profit, and public spheres since the early 20th century, is in the singular position to leverage our long and unique history for all of our clients’ futures.

As a leading group of labor relations practitioners in the world, we excel at all aspects of the labor-management relationship. For employers currently without union-represented workforces, we are there to advise on the potential for union organizing through the full union representational process, from onset to secret ballot election.

At our core, we are negotiators – taking the lead in negotiations, drafting contract language, and providing all necessary support to reach our clients' goals, whether it's a routine contract renewal or a complicated, sensitive and high-profile matter.

We also regularly litigate the full range of labor-management issues that arise both in public forums – including the National Labor Relations Board and federal and state courts – and private labor arbitration for contract administration disputes.

Our legal prowess and understanding of both the management and labor positions – and the respect we have earned on both sides as a result – has given us the reputation in the business and labor community necessary to achieve the results our clients need.
