A Tradition of Service

Epstein Becker Green's attorneys have literally done it all when it comes to labor relations, and our professional credentials rival those of any other firm in the United States. With backgrounds ranging from service with the NLRB, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the U.S. Department of Justice to state and local agencies regulating labor-management relations in the public and private sectors, our attorneys have been involved in the formulation and enforcement of national and state labor policy at the highest levels. That collective experience includes representing private sector, not-for-profit, and government employers in all aspects of labor-management relations, including union organizing campaigns; union corporate campaigns; representation and decertification cases before the NLRB and state agencies; unfair labor practice proceedings before the NLRB and state agencies; advice and counsel with respect to mergers, acquisitions, and reorganizations; the prosecution and defense of damages claims by and against labor organizations; and strikes, secondary boycotts, picketing and hand-billing, mass demonstrations, and violence or vandalism. In addition, Epstein Becker Green's attorneys have successfully represented employers in literally hundreds of grievance-arbitration proceedings (including disciplinary, discharge, or contract interpretation grievances) and contract negotiations (including bargaining for multiemployer associations and single employers with multistate and national contracts).
