McCarthy Lebit’s employment lawyers have earned the reputation as a leading employment law practice in Cleveland, as well as nationally. Ann-Marie Ahern and Jack Moran lead the employment law group and are highly sought-after for their experience and results-oriented approach to client matters. McCarthy, Lebit’s attorneys are widely recognized as lawyers with exceptional knowledge of employment law, who also have the skills and tenacity to litigate the most complex and high stakes cases. When appropriate, we work to resolve matters quickly and efficiently. However, when litigation is necessary to vindicate our client’s rights, we will not hesitate to call on our years of trial experience.
We are committed to holding employers accountable to the laws that govern the employment relationship, including laws prohibiting age discrimination, sex discrimination, disability discrimination, race discrimination, and sexual harassment. We also represent employees who have not been paid fairly for their work, have had their contracts violated, or have been denied rights under the Family Medical Leave Act. We understand that a problem at work or the loss of a job is a stressful and often economically devastating experience. Our plaintiff’s attorneys have the experience required to take on companies of any size and make them take responsibility for illegal employment decisions. We provide a personal level of service at every juncture so that our clients feel confident that their matters are of utmost importance.
Our employment law team has been involved in many outcomes in excess of one million dollars, including a $30 million verdict on behalf of a single age discrimination victim and a $61 million False Claims Act settlement. Each year, we obtain millions of dollars of results on behalf of our clients.
When employees are sued or threatened by their previous employers, for breach of non-compete agreements or other obligations, McCarthy Lebit’s team is ideally positioned to give employees the best possible outcome.
In addition to advocating on behalf of employees in litigation, we also advise our corporate clients on the full spectrum of employment disputes. We assist clients in managing difficult employment situations in a way that complies with the myriad of employment laws, and in drafting employment policies and handbooks. We serve as trusted advisors in helping our corporate clients avoid missteps in the employment process that can lead to costly litigation.
McCarthy Lebit particularly excels at representing executives and other high-level managers in their career transitions. We understand the special considerations and sensitivities at issue and the sometimes complex compensation models that apply to executive employment. Lucrative severance packages at this level are very common and often negotiable. The experience of our unique team of professionals, who possess sophisticated business acumen, enables us to provide a superior level of performance and results for our clients. Unlike many firms that limit their practice to employment law, as a full-service law firm, we can and do call on the experience of our other practice groups, including our taxation, business, or estate planning lawyers.
We will evaluate your case, listen to your goals, and fight for the best resolution.
