Employers across industries look to attorney Adriana Kosovych to defend them in federal and state wage and hour actions and to help them prevent workplace issues and reduce legal exposure.
In wage and hour disputes, Adriana takes command of the facts, formulates and implements thoughtful strategies, and develops creative and forceful arguments to block class certification attempts, whittle down claims and putative classes, and defeat on summary judgment both high-profile and complex nationwide class and collective actions and smaller-scale litigations.
Clients also rely on Adriana as a trusted advisor to provide day-to-day advice on wage and hour matters, ranging from discrete questions involving a single employee to company-wide policies and practices affecting hundreds or thousands of employees. Because of Adriana’s experience in the wage and hour field, clients and colleagues view her as a “go to” wage and hour attorney.
Although Adriana focuses her practice primarily on wage and hour litigation and counseling, she also handles numerous other employment law matters, including defending against complex, high-stakes, and high-profile lawsuits involving claims of discrimination, retaliation, hostile work environment and harassment, and wrongful termination; investigating internal complaints regarding the workplace; providing advice and counseling on performance management, accommodation, and other employment issues; and reviewing employer policies.
Before joining Epstein Becker Green, Adriana was an attorney in the Labor and Employment practice group at a boutique law firm in New York City.
