About Us

New Jersey Employment Lawyers

About UsFounded in 1998, Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, P.C. is a New Jersey employment law firm that handles a wide range of workplace-related legal claims. For example, we represent individuals who have claims involving discrimination, harassment, whistleblower retaliation, family and medical leaves, employment contracts, wage and hour disputes, commission disputes, and other similar issues.

For our first 35 years, we were located in Upper Montclair, New Jersey, which is in Essex County.  In early 2023, we relocated to our current more modern office in Montvale, which is in Bergen County. We continue to represent clients throughout the state of New Jersey, as well as ones who work in New York City, and Westchester and Rockland County, New York.

At Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, we represent all levels of workers in employment law matters in New Jersey and New York. We help our clients address concerns at various junctures, including before they have been hired, when they have disputes or concerns at their current job, while they are preparing to leave a position, and after they have been wrongfully terminated or otherwise left their job. In each instance, our attorneys work hard to craft practical and creative solutions to help our clients achieve their monetary and career objectives.

High Quality Legal Representation

Our attorneys have graduated from some of the best law schools in the nation, including Yale, Cornell and Georgetown University.

Representing Executives and Management

Our New Jersey employment law attorneys provide executives and others in senior positions with sophisticated legal advice concerning the implications of complex employment issues, including issues involving equity, incentive compensation, and bonuses. We represent employees at the most senior levels in contract negotiations, including negotiations in which equity in the company is (or should be) involved.

Our attorneys engage in negotiation and litigation to enforce employee and shareholder rights, as well as to obtain relief from non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants.

In addition, two of our attorneys serve as mediators in both private and court ordered employment law mediations.
