All employers understand that disputes with employees or the unions that represent their interests are always a possibility. At Carella Byrne, we are trusted allies and advocates for unionized businesses that face challenges with organized labor, effectively negotiating favorable terms for collective bargaining agreements, participating in arbitrations, managing work stoppages or strikes, and defending against unfair labor practice allegations.

Our management-side labor lawyers defend against the full range of employment-related claims, including matters pending before Federal and State agencies as well as in Federal and State courts. Whether before a hearing board, in the courtroom, or at the negotiating table, our labor lawyers leverage their considerable advocacy and negotiating skills to advance and protect our clients’ interests.
