Levy Ratner’s 40 years of successfully representing unions and plaintiffs puts us at the forefront of the workers’ rights movement. We offer comprehensive representation for our clients in the workplace, in negotiations, in arbitrations, before federal, state and municipal agencies, and in the courtroom. Our skilled and experienced attorneys provide counsel that is proactive, responsive and helps our clients win.
Levy Ratner’s attorneys have national reputations in the field of labor and employment law and extensive expertise handling complex, precedent-setting cases. We have won victories and significant settlements in major class action civil rights cases and lawsuits to restore pension fund assets to members. We are proud to work as cooperating attorneys with the Center for Constitutional Rights, the New York Civil Liberties Union and other organizations to fight workplace discrimination and other abuses through impact litigation.
We also represent major international and local unions, and currently serve as general counsel to the largest local health care union in the country, with more than 400,000 members across New York State, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Florida and the Maryland/Washington D.C. area. Levy Ratner’s union clients represent workers in a variety of other industries including academia, fast food, utilities, typography, and cultural institutions. Our attorneys also represent multi-billion dollar employee benefit funds, community groups and political organizations.
We are a team of seasoned and diverse professionals. Levy Ratner attorneys teach, lecture at events sponsored by bar associations and write extensively on significant legal issues. Our attorneys come from varied backgrounds: some served as law clerks for federal judges, others have experience in government and public service, and many came to the firm after careers in union, political or community organizing.
Through hands-on, individualized representation by advocates with national reputations, and an unwavering commitment to social justice, we consistently provide our clients with progressive, high-quality, cost-effective representation.
