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.

Union Administration

Federal regulation of labor unions has grown increasingly complex. Recent U.S. Department of Labor rules greatly expand union reporting requirements. Whether it's changes to bylaws or conducting internal union elections, dealing with religious objectors or tracking chargeable expenditures for Beck/Hudson purposes, our firm has the expertise in assisting organizations with the challenges and critical details surrounding union security, LMRDA and LM-2 obligations.
