Overview Press Room


With an unmatched combination of legal and practical public sector experience, regularly appearing before the New York State Public Employment Relations Board and various state and local agencies, Proskauer’s Public Sector Practice includes all aspects of the labor-management relationship–from conducting collective bargaining negotiations to handling grievances and arbitrations, to advising employers on the labor law implications of organizational and operational changes and formulating strategies for implementing such changes.

Our Public Sector Group, which includes the former Chief Labor Negotiator and Chief Financial Officer of the nation’s largest public transportation agency, has several decades of experience of representing two of the largest public employers in the nation–the City of New York and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and its related entities (including New York City Transit Authority, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, Metro-North Commuter Railroad, Long Island Rail Road, MTA Staten Island Railway and MTA Bus Company).
