In 2011, Engel & Schultz continued to obtain successful results in a variety of employment and construction cases. The firm took over the appeal of a construction dispute in which a judgment had been entered against our client prior to Engel & Schultz’s representation for a substantial six figure number. Engel & Schultz successfully negotiated an approximate one third reduction in the judgment.
In the employment arena, the firm negotiated substantial settlements in two employment termination actions: (1) a whistleblower case, and (2) a case alleging violations of the Family Medical Leave Act brought against a major international investment bank. Finally, the firm successfully negotiated a settlement of an employment harassment case, alleging harassment of the employee on the basis of his Arabic ancestry.
