Labor, Employment, Benefits + Immigration

Robinson+Cole is one of the few firms in the Northeast to offer a full array of employment law services to employers: counseling, litigation, immigration, benefits, labor relations, and training. Given our depth of understanding of all facets of the employment relationship, we are able to assist clients not only with addressing pressing legal concerns, but in proactively examining policies and practices to minimize future issues and increase compliance with the laws applicable to the employee-employer relationship. We have substantial experience in dealing with the numerous state and federal laws that impact the employment relationship, as well as with the state and federal agencies responsible for enforcing those laws. Currently, 19 of our lawyers practice exclusively in these areas.
