Practice Areas

Our practice focuses on representing labor unions in both the private and public sectors. We emphasize preventive law to minimize union legal costs and sponsor periodic free or low-cost labor law seminars to further that goal.

We also directly represent workers—often in cases involving legal issues that impact an entire workforce, such as wage & hour violations, rest and meal break compliance, and paid family and medical leave requirements, in addition to providing individual representation in contract and discrimination cases. We also represent numerous progressive non-profit organizations which play a vital part in defending and advocating for working people and their families.

Our firm provides compliance and strategic advice to Sec. 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) organizations whose missions are consistent with our labor union and other clients. Similarly, we provide a wide range of advice regarding compliance with federal, state, and local campaign finance requirements for those of our clients that participate in electoral politics.

Federal Trial & Appellate Litigation

Our experienced attorneys provide decades of expert level federal and appellate court experience, coupled with up-to-date knowledge, fresh perspectives and critical judgment. We analyze the issues at hand to determine whether litigation will be effective and appropriate, identify appellate issues and impacts, craft high level litigation and appellate briefing, and present oral arguments. Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt LLP fully understands the important role federal court plays in relation to our clients, and our approach to federal litigation is careful, thorough and effective. We pride ourselves on keeping our clients' best interest in mind and staying attentive to continue to deliver the best possible client service.
