New Jersey Employment Litigation Attorneys with Decades of Experience

Delivering results through a variety of dispute resolution methods

When your employment is on the line, the litigation attorneys at Deutsch Atkins & Kleinfeldt, P.C. are ready to help. If you’ve been wrongly discharged and need compensation or reinstatement, you can trust one of the largest and most successful employment discrimination law firms in New Jersey. We resolve employment disputes swiftly and cost-effectively, and work diligently to maximize any compensation due to our clients. Our lawyers give you the attention you deserve, and throughout the entire process, we treat you like you are our only client.

Taking a comprehensive approach to employment disputes

Our approach to your employment disputes depends upon the circumstances and your goals for the litigation. In many instances, our clients seek equitable relief, such as an injunction that prevents the employer from continuing some behavior that violates our client’s rights. In other cases, our clients need a clause in their employment contract enforced. In still other cases, our clients’ rights have been so badly abused that damages must be paid. The employment litigation attorneys of Deutsch Atkins & Kleinfeldt, P.C. represent employees in all types of disputes, including:

  • Contracts — We assist senior management and corporate officers with contract disputes involving executive compensation. We regularly litigate allegations of fraud and misrepresentation and disagreements over equity options, noncompete agreements and severance package settlements.
  • Compensation — We assert our clients’ rights to just compensation in wage and hour disputes and conflicts over incentive payments and deferred compensation earnings.
  • Sales commissions — Commissioned salespeople, brokers, manufacturers representatives, managers, executives and other employees often earn money that is payable at a later date. Many times, the company does not pay the full amount owed, especially if the employee leaves the company before the accrued earnings are paid. We will work to recover the commissions you are owed.
  • Shareholder and partnership issues — Our executive clients are often minority shareholders who find themselves victims of business oppression. In closely held and family-owned business disputes, our attorneys resolve issues among owners, managers and family members.

Our experienced New Jersey employment litigation lawyers are prepared to negotiate, arbitrate or litigate your claim, and deliver the relief you need.
