Employment Law

Our Employment Litigation team includes top attorneys with backgrounds in all aspects of public sector employment law.

At KBM, we know the most effective litigation strategy is to never get sued in the first place.  When it comes to public employment, litigation can often be avoided through proper training and sound policy.  Our Employment Litigation Team has extensive experience providing practical, proactive training and risk management solutions to address the full range of issues facing public sector employers, private employers, and human resources professionals including recruiting, hiring, and training; performance management and promotions; disciplinary procedures; internal policy development; disability accommodation; and investigation of workplace complaints.

Our team is available for advice on initial policy development, review and analysis of ongoing training or policy issues, or targeted investigation of potential risk management concerns.  In addition, our team offers customized training sessions for small or large groups on all aspects of public sector and corporate employment.

Nevertheless, no amount of training and policy can completely insulate a public agency or private employer from employment-related claims and lawsuits.  Fortunately, we have vigorously defended public agencies and private employers in employment litigation for more than 30 years, achieving consistent and unparalleled success in both state and federal courts. We routinely provide litigation defense to employers, state and local agencies, elected officials, supervisors, and other individuals named as defendants in civil lawsuits.

Our Employment Litigation team includes top attorneys with backgrounds in all aspects of public sector employment law, including the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, U.S. Marine Judge Advocate General’s Corps, the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, and the King County Prosecutor’s Office.  We have the unique combination of education, training, and experience to successfully litigate the full range of issues facing governmental entities and private employers in today’s ever-changing employment landscape.

Our Employment Litigation Team has the skills, know-how, and real world experience to successfully work with all levels of public sector and corporate employees; from the seasoned decision-maker to the entry-level employee who is, for the first time, facing these daunting issues.

“KBM was great. They were incredibly driven, smart, and aggresive in handling our case. If you want to win, hire Keating, Bucklin and McCormack.”
