Alex Stevens counsels employers across the country regarding all aspects of employment law, and defends them before state and federal courts, arbitrators and administrative agencies in employment-related matters ranging from wage-and-hour compliance to alleged trade secret theft.
While Alex’s experience is broad, his practice focuses especially on labor union-management relations and other high-stakes matters with potential company-wide implications, such as workforce restructurings and reductions-in-force, and the employment implications of mergers and acquisitions.
Alex’s traditional labor law clients range from small employers facing their first union election to sophisticated companies with longstanding collective bargaining relationships involving thousands of employees. Alex advises these clients on union organizing campaigns and elections, collective bargaining negotiations and strategy, and grievance arbitrations and NLRB litigation.
In addition to his traditional labor law practice, Alex has extensive experience advising clients on the employment implications of mergers, acquisitions and other transactions, including advising private equity funds on emerging joint employment concerns and other cutting edge issues. Alex is also well-versed in the interaction between employment law and the Bankruptcy Code, and has advised debtors regarding the applicability of Sections 1113 and 1114 and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN).
