Global financial institutions and large multinational corporations looking for a client-driven, highly experienced, and highly responsive employment lawyer to be their client partner turn to Victoria Sloan Lin.

Victoria is focused on conducting internal investigations, defending employers against lawsuits and administrative charges, and providing business-ready employment advice quickly and efficiently to support in-house legal, human resources, and employee relations departments. Clients benefit from Victoria’s foresight and consistency, bolstered by her regular and concise collaboration to ensure they have ready access to the knowledge required to answer inquiries from their own clients and employees.

Victoria provides advice on all aspects of employment law (including reductions in force and separations) and helps her clients ensure compliance with new and existing laws, rules, and regulations. When clients receive employee complaints of sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying, other inappropriate behavior, failure to accommodate, or unequal pay, Victoria conducts an appropriate internal investigation to provide a thorough understanding of the concern and support any necessary corrective action. As vice-chair of the firm’s Workplace Investigations practice group, she stays well-informed of developments and trends throughout the legal industry.

When litigation is unavoidable, Victoria takes the lead in vigorously defending employers in federal and state court or before arbitration tribunals, including FINRA and AAA. She regularly handles claims involving discrimination, harassment, retaliation, failure to accommodate disabilities, whistleblowing, breach of contract, compensation, and other employment-related issues. She also mediates employment claims that cannot be resolved without intervention and defends administrative actions, including charges filed at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, New York State Division of Human Rights, and New York City Commission on Human Rights.
