Winston & Strawn’s labor and employment and EBEC departments have long been considered among the nation’s premier practices, as evidenced by the regular recognitions we receive on both regional and national levels.
Our labor and employment department represents employers of all types and sizes—ranging from the Fortune 100 to privately held startups, including businesses both foreign and domestic. Our substantively knowledgeable and responsive team manages several significant national and regional labor and employment engagements. In addition, we regularly handle complex litigation matters involving hard-hitting issues, including major class and collective actions, with an emphasis on wage and hour and ERISA litigation. Among our peer firms, we have one of the most experienced and long standing labor-management relations practices, which covers the full range of high-profile and complex labor disputes. We also regularly handle single plaintiff employment litigation; as well as matters involving trade secrets, unfair competition, and noncompete issues; important counseling and compliance advice; as well as other day-to-day employment issues.
Our EBEC attorneys focus primarily on executive compensation issues for corporations, boards of directors, partnerships, executives, and fiduciaries, as well as advise these clients on both innovative and traditional employee benefits programs. Our level of experience and more than 40 years of involvement in the EBEC field have given our attorneys a deep understanding of the evolution of benefits law and the market for executive compensation.
