Foran Glennon Palandech Ponzi & Rudloff

Civil Defense Litigation


Foran Glennon attorneys have extensive experience in handling a wide variety of employment related claims. We have counseled and defended corporate clients on a wide array of issues and cases arising out of the workplace, including those relating to age and sex discrimination and where the termination of employment poses the potential for litigation.

We understand that what is often at stake is not only potential financial liability but a loss of reputation for the individual whose conduct is on trial and a public relations disaster for the business or organization. As a result, we strive to develop a defense strategy which balances the economic exposure and the reputation and public relations interests presented by the claim, and we work closely with the client in adopting an approach which serves all of the interests of the business.

Our experience has taught us the value of exploring both traditional and non-traditional avenues of resolving employment related claims. This is particularly important when developing creative approaches necessary in an increasingly litigious employment environment.

Our experience does not begin and end at the courthouse door. We have assisted clients facing investigations by governmental bureaucracies in which civil and criminal sanctions are implicated. We have also provided oversight of internal investigations in anticipation of litigation or governmental review and have made recommendations for improving internal hiring and supervisory procedures to minimize the potential for future litigation.

Our goal is to assist our clients in developing strategies for minimizing exposure to employment claims and resolving those claims in ways which are consistent with management’s operational and risk management goals for the organization.
