Morrison & Foerster focuses on employment and labor law matters of critical strategic importance to our clients, drawing on the firm’s core competencies, particularly in litigation and intellectual property. The hallmark of the practice is high-stakes litigation involving employee raiding and theft of trade secrets, whistleblower retaliation, wage and hour and other employment class actions, workplace privacy, and traditional labor relations. We provide counseling, auditing, and litigation-avoidance strategies concerning all aspects of the employment relationship. In addition, we work closely with attorneys in our corporate practice to regularly assist clients in the multijurisdictional employment aspects of domestic and international mergers and acquisitions and sourcing transactions.
