Overview

With a strong investigative background, Eric represents clients in labor and employment litigation and compliance investigations.

Eric divides his practice between traditional labor and employment litigation and compliance work. He has represented clients in both nationwide collective action and single-plaintiff cases involving federal and state discrimination and retaliation laws, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), whistleblowers, non-competition agreements and trade secrets, and other statutes and regulatory bodies.

Alongside his litigation work, Eric also leads clients through internal and external investigations, as well as internal compliance and training programs. He has investigated and evaluated compliance with U.S. export controls, trade sanctions, cross-border enforcement, and matters involving the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and the U.S. Department of Justice. Eric was a member of the court-appointed legal team tasked with monitoring a global technology company in one of the largest corporate compliance monitorships in U.S. history.

Before pursuing a legal career, Eric trained as a journalist—a background that helped him develop the skills that he regularly deploys not only in investigation work, but also when digging into the cases he represents. Eric aims to learn as much as possible about the client and the client’s business and industry, describing himself as insatiably curious.

Eric began his legal career at an employee-side labor and employment firm, an advantageous experience he draws on in counseling and, when necessary, litigation. Known as an excellent listener willing to think outside the box, Eric understands that clients may have different measures for success. His central focus is always on achieving the client’s goals and reaching the best resolution possible.
