KM&M focuses exclusively on management-side labor law representation. We work with companies and not-for-profit entities of all sizes, and we have clients across the country. Whether you are seeking to proactively manage labor relations, responding to potential employee organizing, facing a labor-related dispute, or managing an established relationship with a labor union, our lawyers can guide you toward favorable and long-term resolutions. We advise our clients on employment-related matters as well.
Labor Relations Strategy, Advice, and Counsel
For over fifty years, we have worked with employers to develop and implement custom-tailored strategies designed to protect their business interests and minimize their litigation risk while also satisfying the demands of their workforce. We advise and counsel on literally every workplace issue.
National Labor Relations Act Proceedings and Appellate Review
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) is the national governing statute addressing the rights of employees to organize and sets the rules of conduct governing the actions of employers and unions in protecting these rights. Our practice assists our clients in the most effective representation in NLRA election procedures (representation, decertification, and deauthorization), when clients must respond to any unfair labor practice charge, litigate a complaint before the NLRB, appeal an adverse NLRB decision to the courts, or file an unfair labor practice against a labor union.
Collective Bargaining Negotiations and Contract Administration
Most of the employers we represent have established relationships with unions representing some portion of their workforce. Our labor lawyers spend a significant amount of their time in collective bargaining negotiations and contract administration. We have developed ongoing relationships with unions based on civility, trustworthiness, and respect. In preparation for bargaining, we listen to our clients’ problems, understand their business, do necessary economic analysis, prepare proposals, and partner with our client’s representatives at the bargaining table, frequently functioning as their spokesperson.
A collective bargaining agreement is a living, working document that attempts to anticipate every workplace issue that might arise. But, frequently, workplace issues or disputes arise about the meaning or application of the contract that must be resolved in neutral arbitration. Here, it is imperative that employers establish a strong track record of securing favorable results in these proceedings. At KM&M, our labor lawyers are not only well-versed in the unique aspects and intricacies of labor arbitration, but are inculcated with what we think is most important - preparation.
