Squire Patton Boggs

Squire Patton Boggs combines sound legal counsel with a deep knowledge of our clients’ businesses to resolve their legal challenges. We care about the quality of our services, the success of our clients and the relationships that are forged through those successes. With approximately 1,500 lawyers in 44 offices located in 21 countries, our global legal practice is in the markets where our clients do business.

Our labor and employment lawyers represent employers across the full spectrum of employee-related legal issues and the business immigration arena. We work closely with other lawyers in our tax strategy and benefits, pensions, corporate and litigation practice groups, as needed, to provide comprehensive labor and employment representation around the world. They have been at the forefront of today's most critical employment and labor relations issues relating to wage and hour litigation, noncompete agreements, union avoidance, employment discrimination, plant closings and family leave.

In addition to being experienced trial lawyers, our labor and employment practitioners counsel clients in all aspects of employment including employment contracts, handbooks, investigations and internal compliance audits. We represent a myriad of employers, from Fortune 500 companies to small startups, from public entities to high-technology research and development companies, and from heavy manufacturers to service companies and financial institutions. This broad client base, along with a diverse, experienced group of lawyers, gives the practice breadth and depth in literally every aspect of labor and employment law.

From a federal and state law perspective, wage and hour compliance is one of the most challenging employment law issues facing employers today. To help employers overcome these challenges, Squire Patton Boggs provides tailored solutions to local, national and multinational clients. Lawyers counsel employers on advanced wage and hour issues that have caused the most difficulty including distinctions between exempt and non-exempt employees, joint employment, travel and training time, complex overtime calculations, application of the “no docking rule,” and understanding “off-the-clock” overtime claims. We work with clients to minimize their liability, from advising them on isolated employee issues to representing them in comprehensive wage and hour audits.

A unique specialty of the practice is the significant experience handling wage and hour collective and class actions. Labor and employment trial lawyers regularly defend employers in lawsuits and administrative disputes under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), prevailing wage laws, and other state wage and hour laws.
