Labor and Employment Litigation and Counseling

Larson's employment practice includes representing corporations in high-stakes single-plaintiff and class action employment disputes in state and federal courts, in arbitration, and before administrative bodies.

We defend employers and managers against discrimination claims, wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation.

Our experience includes successfully representing employers against claims under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and the Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA), to name a few. We also represent executives in high-profile employment matters, arising from executive compensation agreements and separation agreements.

In addition to litigation, Larson provides comprehensive counseling to employers in order to mitigate exposure before litigation. In this capacity, our attorneys conduct training regarding compliance with state and federal employment laws and lead internal workplace investigations.
