Labor and Employment


Bates White’s Labor and Employment Practice provides analytical and litigation consulting services to law firms and employers of all sizes. Our experts have played important roles in some of the largest employment discrimination class action cases in recent history and in a wide range of smaller cases. Our approach combines careful data analysis, state-of-the-art economic and statistical methods, and an unwillingness to settle for easy answers. Our strong relationships with key academics and industry experts complement the firm’s expertise.

We have analyzed all types of employment discrimination claims as consulting and as testifying experts, and we have worked on large cases involving public and private defendants. Our analyses have addressed a wide range of liability and damages claims, including FLSA-related issues, discrimination in salary, total compensation, promotions, ratings, and hiring. We have also studied claims of discrimination based on gender, race, national origin, age, disability, and other factors.
