Randy considers it a bit ironic that he moves so freely from one side of restrictive covenant litigation to the other.

He has worked both sides of the fence, at times representing companies and at other times employees in cases that concern trade secrets, noncompete clauses and nonsolicitation agreements. He enjoys the relatively fast pace of these types of cases, being able “to run into court and get it done.” Clients appreciate his efficiency.

Randy has clients in industries as diverse as corrugated packaging, chemical manufacturing and healthcare. He represents them in all matters relating to labor and employment law, from day-to-day counseling to class action litigation.

Randy also has argued employment discrimination cases in a long list of U.S. district and appeals courts, making his practice national in scope.
