Tom is experienced in all aspects of private and public sector labor & employment law. Throughout twenty-nine years of practicing law, I have represented management clients primarily, including non-profit organizations, municipalities and insurance companies. I also represent executives in the negotiation of executive employment agreements, severance agreements and other exit packages.

My practice concentrates on: Wrongful discharge, labor arbitration, collective bargaining, wage and hour, ADA, civil rights and sexual harassment litigation in the private and public sectors, union elections, unfair labor practice and representation proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and Vermont Labor Relations Board, litigation over no-compete agreements, trade secret disputes and the drafting of employee handbooks and personnel policies.
