Berger & Montague's Employment Law Group
protects employee rights across the United States.
The Berger & Montague lawyers who comprise our Employment
Law Group work tirelessly to safeguard the rights of employees, and
devote all of their energies to helping our firm's clients achieve
their goals. Our attorneys' understanding of federal and state wage
and hour laws, federal and state civil rights and discrimination
laws, ERISA, the WARN Act, laws protecting whistleblowers, such as
federal and state False Claims Acts, and other employment laws,
allows us to develop creative strategies to vindicate our clients'
rights and help them secure the compensation to which they are
entitled. We also are at the forefront in establishing class action
remedies for employees based on breach of contract, unjust
enrichment, and other state common law causes of action.
Berger & Montague's Employment Law Group is repeatedly
recognized for outstanding success in effectively representing its
clients. In 2015, The National Law Journal
selected Berger & Montague as the top plaintiffs' law
firm in the Employment Law category at the
Elite Trial Lawyers awards ceremony. Portfolio Media, which
publishes Law 360, also recognized Berger &
Montague as one of the eight Top Employment
Plaintiffs' Firms in 2009.
More recently, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan W. Feldman of the
U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York,
|Shanon Carson, Chair of the Employment Law
"The nature of the instant
application obliges the Court to make this point clear: In my
fifteen years on the bench, no case has been litigated with more
skill, tenacity and legal professionalism than this case. The
clients, corporate and individual, should be proud of the manner in
which their legal interests were brought before and presented to
the Court by their lawyers and law firms."
"…the Court would be remiss if it
did not commend class counsel and all those who worked for firms
representing the thousands of current and former employees of Kodak
for the outstanding job they did in representing the interests of
their clients. For the last several years, lead counsel
responsibilities were shared by Shanon Carson .... Their legal work in an
extraordinarily complex case was exemplary, their tireless
commitment to seeking justice for their clients was unparalleled
and their conduct as officers of the court was beyond reproach."
