Trif & Modugno attorneys represent clients across the spectrum of labor and employment litigation matters in trial and appellate courts at the administrative, federal and state level and in arbitrations and other dispute resolution proceedings, including cases involving allegations of unfair competition, trade secrets, enforcement of restrictive covenants and wage and hour actions.  

Our attorneys also represent employers in avoiding, creatively resolving and defending against claims for harassment, equal pay, state labor law, discrimination, whistleblower/retaliation and wrongful discharge. 

Trif & Modugno also regularly represents clients in dealings with labor unions from the initial contacts during an organizing campaign to the litigation of unfair labor practices, negotiation of collective bargaining agreements and processing of grievances and arbitrations.  We recognize that clients confronted with decisions about employment and labor issues need a trusted advisor who can provide them with strategic, practical and effective solutions.
