  • On behalf of a major hotel, we obtained voluntary dismissal of a plaintiff’s claim of same-sex harassment after successfully compelling arbitration.
  • Successfully obtained an injunction against two employees of an advertising agency. The injunction resulted from an investigation that followed the employees’ threatened sexual harassment claims and revealed they were attempting to start a competing business while still employed by the agency.
  • Recently obtained temporary and permanent injunctive relief against two disgruntled former employees who physically threatened our client and the company’s staff.
  • Achieved a unique and extremely satisfying result for our client, the president of a large garment manufacturer, when sexual harassment and wrongful termination actions were filed by four plaintiffs against him and his company; the plaintiffs’ original demand was $4 million. Greenberg Glusker attorneys first conducted a thorough investigation of plaintiffs’ claims and obtained dozens of declarations from co-workers and third parties. As a result of the Firm’s investigative efforts, the case was resolved after only three days of deposition when all four plaintiffs agreed to dismiss their cases with prejudice and to provide videotaped and written apologies to the president and to the company for filing these actions.
