Restructuring Practice

The firm continues to be a leader in providing legal counsel and strategic advice to unions when employers undergo corporate restructuring. Often working with union financial advisors and corporate counsel, we help our union clients craft innovative solutions to the complex challenges posed by mergers, spinoffs, sales, shutdowns and other forms of corporate change.

Over the years, we have helped many unions negotiate sophisticated terms for protecting their members’ interests. These include job security and work preservation clauses, plans for employee ownership of corporate equity or debt, and provisions for employee participation in corporate governance, such as participation on corporate boards.

We adapt our approach to the facts of each situation, but in each our goal remains the same: to draw on our skill and experience as labor advocates in order to help our union clients meet the challenges of a changed corporate environment.
