Employment Lawyers

Protecting the Interests of Employees

Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, P.C. distinguishes itself by providing sophisticated yet personal legal representation in employment law matters to individuals whose rights have been violated at work.

We handle a wide range of employment law disputes, including ones involving unlawful discrimination, whistleblower retaliation and harassment. We also represent individuals with matters involving wrongful termination, employment contracts, severance agreement, sexual harassment, family and medical leaves, non-compete agreements, overtime and minimum wage violations and accommodations for disabilities, among other workplace issues.

Our employment law attorneys take the time to understand our clients' objectives. We are experienced in negotiating employment law disputes to a resolution, as well as at representing clients through arbitration, mediation and litigation.

Providing Business Advice to Entrepreneurs

Attorneys in our small business and entrepreneurial services practice provide innovative and strategic guidance to clients who are seeking to start, grow or restructure a business, purchase another business, sell their interest in a business, or protect their shareholder or other equity interests. We also help guide our clients regarding their legal rights when they face the inevitable breakdown of a partnership or small business.

Other Areas of Expertise

Our firm has expertise in other areas of law, including family law, appellate law, estate and tax planning and zoning and land use matters. This can be a special benefit to our employment and business law clients because these fields can be integral components of comprehensive representation.

In addition, eight of our attorneys serve as mediators, in employment and business disputes, as well as in labor law and zoning and land use matters.

A History of Commitment

Representing Employees and Entrepreneurs

Founded in 1988, Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg represents employees in New Jersey and New York who have been wrongfully discharged or whose other workplace rights have been violated, whether by closely held businesses or Fortune 500 companies. Our firm is large enough to afford our clients the resources necessary to succeed in an array of employment and entrepreneurial-related matters, yet small enough that our clients have direct access to our highly accomplished attorneys with in-depth employment law and business law experience.

Our clients rely on us for the drive and perseverance we provide and the results we produce in discrimination, retaliation, hostile work environment and other employment-related cases, as well as in our comprehensive representation of entrepreneurs and small businesses in corporate and commercial matters.

Our lawyers collaborate, so our individual strengths in employment and business law combine to form a powerful web of legal support for our clients. We work with our clients to chart a clear path to resolve their legal problems.
