Overview

Allison R. Brown counsels and represents employers in a variety of employment law matters. She regularly litigates cases before state and federal courts, administrative tribunals, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and other state and local agencies. Allison defends employers in both single-plaintiff and class action employment disputes, with a focus on:

  • Discrimination, harassment and retaliation litigation
  • Trade secret and non-compete matters
  • Wage and hour
  • Whistleblower actions
