Kevin’s practice is focused on advising the firm’s private equity, financial services, healthcare, and life sciences clients in connection with a wide array of labor and employment-related counseling, transactional, investigation, and litigation matters.
Kevin regularly guides clients through highly sensitive and complex workforce issues, including the onboarding and separations of executives and key employees, effectively addressing allegations of workplace misconduct, implementing broad-based restructurings, and preventing trade secret misappropriation and unfair competition. His counseling practice covers compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws and regulations, including those pertaining to wage and hour issues, reductions-in-force, restrictive covenants, and the prevention of workplace discrimination and harassment.
Kevin also routinely advises on the employment-related aspects of U.S. and cross-border mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, investments, and restructurings. In this capacity, he manages labor and employment due diligence, negotiates and drafts purchase agreements and transition services agreements, and develops and implements workforce transition and integration plans. Kevin is frequently called upon to prepare and negotiate executive employment agreements, consulting agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, separation agreements, and other critical employment-related documents.
Kevin has deep dispute resolution experience, having represented clients before administrative agencies and in all phases of litigation in state and federal court. In particular, he has significant experience litigating non-compete, non-solicitation, and trade secret matters, in addition to defending clients against allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour violations.
Kevin maintains an active pro bono practice focused on impact litigation, voting rights, and asylum matters.
