Employment litigation is a major part of our practice.
While preventive law, employee training, and careful employment decision making can greatly reduce the risk of employment lawsuits, it often becomes necessary for employers to defend themselves against employment law claims in court.
In Missouri, such claims are increasingly brought in state courts, which are viewed as more favorable to employees than the federal courts.
How We Can Help
The attorneys of Harris Dowell Fisher & Young, L.C., are experienced litigators and trial lawyers, handling employment lawsuits in federal and state courts in both Missouri and Illinois. We also often work with local counsel on litigation in other jurisdictions, as well as serving as local counsel for other firms that have no St. Louis office.
We offer employers a full range of labor and employment litigation services, from preparation of initial pleadings through discovery, trial, and appeal. In performing these services, we:
- Maintain a practical approach to employment litigation that provides value and avoids undue expense by focusing efforts on the facts, issues, and procedures most likely to lead to favorable outcomes.
- Work closely with the client on litigation strategy and objectives.
- Provide regular updates.
- Staff litigation matters reasonably, with a firm partner actively involved in each case, and duplication of efforts avoided.
