Areas of Practice

Employment, Civil Rights and Sexual Tort Liability

CG&P’s goal is to assist clients in maximizing their own human resource capabilities to avoid exposure to liability. While employment disputes often result in litigation, the Firm provides risk management to minimize exposure, and educates their clients as to the documentation litigators rely upon in their defense.

Human Resource Guidance

The firm has counseled and defended corporate clients and individuals with respect to a myriad of employment and human rights issues. The Firm counsels clients, including religious institutions, Fortune 500 companies, medical facilities and commercial carriers, with respect to issues ranging from human resource administration to discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual abuse claims.

CG&P’s attorneys also have extensive experience in assisting clients in responding to charges before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions and New York State Division of Human Rights, and in representing them in ensuing litigation in Federal and State courts. The Firm’s attorneys also have extensive experience in defending clients accused of discriminating on the basis of age, disability, or race, and claims arising under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
