We represent public, private and non-profit employers in almost every area of labor and employment law. We have an exceptional track record of success and a dynamic workplace culture of excellence, diversity and collaboration.

Our Workplace Investigations Team is one of the top investigation practices in California. We perform independent investigations of serious allegations for entities in technology, philanthropy, education, government, retirement, law and law enforcement. We specialize in high-stakes matters that involve the leadership ranks of organizations that are already front-page news or likely to become a headline during or after the investigation.

In addition, the following experience is advantageous: ADA/FEHA compliance and disability accommodation; labor negotiations, grievances and arbitrations, and administrative hearings and appeals.

The salary range for this California-based role is $160,000 – $225,000, and represents the firm’s good faith and reasonable estimate of the range of possible compensation at the time of posting. Actual compensation will depend upon a number of factors, including but not limited to, the candidate’s years of experience, qualifications, skill set and office location.
