Working Directly With Clients For Exceptional Results

In addition, we represent employers before all administrative agencies with jurisdiction over employment matters, including the EEOC, state’s equal employment opportunity commissions and the State of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission.

We work closely with our clients to help them prevent grievances and avoid litigation. Through our custom seminars, we advise clients on recent developments in labor and employment law.
