Nossaman LLP


Nossaman's Employment Practice Group provides advice/counseling and litigation support to employers regarding their employment-related needs.  Nossaman assists our clients with identifying, implementing, and achieving their goals in an effective and efficient manner. 

Simply stated, Nossaman's Employment Practice Group has the experience and consistently delivers outstanding results for its clients at reasonable rates.  Our mission is to provide client-focused, high caliber legal services that exceed our clients' expectations within their legal budgets.  We strive to combine the highest quality legal expertise with personalized service.  We listen to our clients, then we implement appropriate strategies to achieve their goals.

We have extensive experience representing employers throughout California, as well as meeting their out-of-state needs.  Our attorneys provide counseling, advice, and litigation services to private and public companies and public entities on a broad array of employment related matters, including harassment, discrimination, wage and hour, unfair competition/trade secrets, wrongful terminations, executive employment agreements and benefits, leave laws, reductions in force/Warn Act, record retention, and union/employer relations.  We also are qualified and experienced trainers for State mandated sexual harassment prevention training and we provide training on current topics to our clients.

The scope of our representation runs the full gamut from prosecuting employee theft to defending discrimination claims (whether based on age, gender, national origin, religion, or disability) to defending wage and hour class actions and wrongful terminations in violation of public policy.  We also have been on the front line of e-discovery and are well prepared to counsel our clients on how to address and control related issues.

Our in-depth knowledge of employment laws and personal commitment distinguishes our employment practice.  We offer clients the optimum legal service.  The Employment Practice Group leverages this expertise to develop creative solutions to our clients' problems, while anticipating and avoiding potentially damaging situations. 

Our counseling services help employers avoid or mitigate costly administrative proceedings and litigation by proactively reviewing and establishing policies and procedures to be consistently applied in the workplace.  Our training workshops and seminars empower our clients to better comply with pertinent laws and regulations and navigate the complex labyrinth of employment issues they face daily.

We also offer investigation and assessment services that often eliminate the threat of a lawsuit and grievances, and give our clients an effective roadmap for responding to inquiries.  However, when disputes cannot be resolved informally, Nossaman has substantial success representing employers before mediators, arbitrators, administrative tribunals, and federal and state courts.  Our attorneys are accomplished litigators who have won judgments in high profile cases.
