We effectively defend employers in trials and appeals in a variety of courts at both the state and federal level. We also represent clients before numerous state, local and federal administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Department of Labor, the Texas Workforce Commission, the Department of Justice, the D.C. Office of Human Rights, and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. Our representation includes charge handling, alternative dispute resolution, and trial work for claims involving the National Labor Relations Act, Title VII, the ADEA, ERISA, and other equal opportunity laws, employment contracts, employment torts, and at-will issues.

We have handled numerous employment discrimination, wrongful discharge, defamation, wage and hour, and other workplace cases. Our attorneys have significant experience with large, multi-plaintiff and class action cases.  This includes successful defense of cases involving alleged age, race, and sex discrimination.

Bracewell regularly handles high-profile and precedent-setting employment cases. For example, a recent client defense marked the first time the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Court upheld mandatory arbitration of a discrimination claim under an arbitration provision contained in an employment agreement.
