About me

Brian K. LaFratta’s practice involves all areas of employment law, including employment litigation, employment contracts and covenants not to compete, and employment law counseling and compliance issues. Brian represents employers in federal and state courts in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and breach of contract lawsuits. He also represents both employers and employees in non-compete and trade secret litigation, including TRO and preliminary injunction proceedings. He routinely defends employers before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR).

In addition to litigation, Brian counsels employers on compliance with employment laws, prepares employment and non-compete agreements, drafts employee handbooks, and conducts employment law training. He also represents buyers and sellers with respect to employment law issues arising out of mergers and acquisitions. Brian also represents clients in commercial litigation matters.
