Profile

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 negotiating their first collective bargaining agreements to sophisticated companies with longstanding union relationships involving thousands of employees. Alex represents these clients in NLRB representation proceedings, collective bargaining negotiations and strategy, and grievance arbitrations and unfair labor practice litigation.

In addition to his traditional labor law practice, Alex advises 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, as well as the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN).
