Lawyers for Employers®

Lane Powell’s Labor and Employment Practice Group knows you need practical answers to employment issues and litigation so that you can maintain focus on your core business. We are committed to understanding your business goals and preferences, and team with you to provide cost-effective, strategic and creative advice, and litigation representation. Our hallmark is a collaborative relationship between you and us to obtain your desired results, while enhancing the workplace environment for both management and staff. And, if you want alternative fee arrangements, we are at the forefront in creating predictable and efficient budgets, which allow for you to better forecast and manage your own budgeting. We minimize costs through early case assessment, collaboration regarding budgets and evaluation of the risks and benefits of different approaches to the issue or case we are handling for you. We offer flat fee programs to respond to demand letters, most agency charges and single-plaintiff lawsuits. In addition, we can create retainer arrangements for ongoing advice work, as well as manager and employee training.

With experienced employment attorneys in our Seattle, Portland and Anchorage offices, we can handle any employment issue you are facing. Relying on our broad and diverse experience, we tailor our advice and representation to your industry, including retail, manufacturing, petroleum, financial services, hospitality, environmental, marine, technology, professional and engineering services, to name a few. We keep current on developing local laws and regulations, and often represent clients affected by proposed amendments to local laws and regulations. We provide updates on current issues through our annual “Best Practices for Best Employers” seminars, periodic “Breakfast with the Employer Adviser” seminars and through our emailed Employer Adviser legal updates. We offer clients our Employer Adviser Pocket Adviser series, with topics such as “Investigating Employee Misconduct,” “Sexual Harassment,” “Substance Abuse in the Workplace” and “Workplace Violence – Managing the Threat.” We also offer a video and online training series on employer rights and responsibilities.

We know the court room and continue to enjoy remarkable success in achieving favorable results, as defined by our clients. Whether you are faced with a single-plaintiff lawsuit or a bet-the-bank class action, we have successfully obtained orders granting summary judgments and denying class certification. We have had great success trying cases before jurors, judges and arbitrators.

We know union issues and provide strategic thinking in addressing union organizing and negotiations involving collective bargaining agreements. We also have experience representing employers in arbitrations, NLRB investigations and proceedings, and campaigns related to strike prevention.

Clients tell us we provide “top notch,” “timely,” “responsive” and “cost-effective” employment expertise, tailored to the specific client’s needs. For several years, Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business has recommended us for our “broad base of highly qualified attorneys” who “manage their resources effectively and have broad expertise in labor and employment matters.”  They also commend us for the ability to “recognize who their client is and the type of practical response needed,” and our “great litigation know-how, which puts this group on the map.” One client enthuses, “I’m very impressed with the work they’ve done.” In a survey of America’s in-house counsel from top companies like Nordstrom, Lane Powell was named a “Go-To Law Firm®” for 2015 in Labor and Employment. In addition, we have been highly ranked in the U.S. News and Best Lawyers annual “Best Law Firms” survey for our work in labor and employment and employee benefits law, and labor and employment litigation. We enjoy what we do, which is why Lane Powell is consistently rated one of the “Best Workplaces” in annual surveys by Puget Sound Business Journal and one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” according to annual surveys by Oregon Business magazine. We want to be your “Go To” firm and will do what we can to meet your every need and exceed your expectations.
