Alison’s practice focuses on defending employers in both state and federal courts and before state and federal agencies against allegations of sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination claims, including age, race, sex and disability discrimination, as well as wage claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state and federal laws. Alison also has experience protecting clients from – as well as defending clients against – alleged trade secret theft, computer fraud and abuse, unfair competition, conspiracies, and non-compete violations.

As an employment litigator, Alison has been part of litigation teams which have obtained jury verdicts in favor of one of the nation’s leading oil and gas industry service providers in a race discrimination lawsuit, and in favor of an NFL football team in a three week age discrimination lawsuit. Alison has also obtained  arbitration rulings in favor of a major non-profit health system in a False Claims Act whistleblower retaliation case, and in favor of a direct broadcast satellite service provider in a race discrimination and retaliation case.

In addition, Alison regularly advises employers regarding compliance issues with various state and federal statutes with the goal of increasing productivity and minimizing conflicts in the workplace that may lead to potentially disruptive employment disputes.
