Experienced Employment Litigators Who Are Ready to Work for You

We have years of employment litigation experience, a wide range of clients, and an impressive record of results.

Employers throughout the United States rely on Parsons Behle & Latimer’s employment litigation defense attorneys because of our long history and depth of experience in defending employment lawsuits, charges, and administrative actions. Our employment attorneys represent business clients in lawsuits before state and federal trial courts, in appeals before state and federal appellate courts, and before various administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Labor (DOL), State Discrimination Agencies (such as the Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division), State Unemployment Agencies, Worker’s Compensation Agencies, and other proceedings involving employment and workplace claims. We also represent clients in mediations and arbitrations according to employment agreements, collective bargaining agreements, private agreements, and court-referred ADR. Additionally, we frequently advise clients regarding the benefits of mediation and arbitration procedures.

Our attorneys have successfully defended and prosecuted a broad range of employment cases for business clients. In particular, our employment litigators have been successful in obtaining dismissal by summary judgment in numerous cases involving all types of statutory and common law claims brought by employees. In teaming with our clients who are in litigation, we strive to be responsive and cost-effective.

Our clients often come to us for the first time when they have been sued by a current or former employee or been served with a charge from an administrative agency. We are able to quickly staff the matter with attorneys experienced with the issues. We approach our work with our clients as a partnership, encouraging openness, feedback, and common goal setting.
