Attorney Peter Stein leverages his more than 45 years of legal experience to advise both national and regional employers on all aspects of labor and employment law. Clients value his ability to break down problems into understandable components, his first-in-class responsiveness, and his sensible approaches to human resource issues.

Peter provides advice and counsel to employers across industries regarding individual or group employment decisions (e.g., hiring, promotions, reduction(s) in force, and terminations), restrictive covenants and unfair competition issues, employer reporting obligations (such as EEO-1, Vets-100, etc.), and wage and hour laws and compliance (including representing employers before federal state and local agencies responsible for wage and hour compliance). He also represents employers before federal, state, and local administrative agencies implementing, regulating, and enforcing employee relations laws, including federal agencies such as the EEOC, the U.S. Department of Labor, and corresponding state and local agencies.
