My practices revolves around employment and labor law, representing employers in all issues pertaining to the employer-employee relationship.
I handle matters involving the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the United States Department of Labor, and the Utah Anti-Discrimination and Labor Division.
I also represent employers regarding matters under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) including defending withdrawal liability claims. For many years I have represented trustees of employee welfare and benefit plans governed by ERISA. I have also defended employers against state causes of action arising out of the employer-employee relationship, including wrongful termination actions, intentional tort claims, worker’s compensation and unemployment claims. Helping employers negotiate collective bargaining agreements and arbitrate grievances under such agreements is another area in which I have wide experience.
