New York Metro

The New York Metro area is home to industries that drive the national and global economy – finance, healthcare, professional services, retail, hospitality, fashion and educational services – but is also where you can find every industry in the world represented.

Overview

Companies that are responsible for, and capitalize on, New York’s global position are dependent on the people – employees – who drive an organization’s success. New York presents a challenging environment for employers, providing employees with abundant protections, including broad anti-discrimination protections, leave accommodations, and a high minimum wage. To thrive in New York requires the strength of a law firm that delivers tailored legal advice and representation to employers in every aspect of labor and employment law.

With more than 135 lawyers, Jackson Lewis has one of the largest employment and workplace law practices in the New York Metro area. Founded in New York City in 1958, the firm expanded to White Plains in the 1980s and Long Island in the 1990s to better serve our clients across the entire metro area. Named a 2018 BTI Employment Litigation Powerhouse, our New York practice covers all aspects of labor and employment law. In addition to litigation, our attorneys in the New York Metro region provide clients with advice and counsel in matters involving traditional labor, non-competes/unfair competition, disability management, affirmative action compliance and OFCCP defense, employee benefits, employee privacy, workplace drug and alcohol testing, workplace safety, immigration and international employment.

Our client list includes many of the most prominent domestic and global corporations, featuring hundreds of multinational and private businesses. Approximately 500 new clients join our New York Metro roster each year.
