Over the past quarter of a century, Kreitzman Mortensen & Borden has been providing quality legal representation solely and exclusively to Employers -- and their local, corporate or in-house counsel -- throughout the United States. For our entire firm’s history, we have focused our practice on, and developed expertise in, representing management in the various facets of Labor and Employment Law.
Our primary focus is on working with you – the independent business owner, the entrepreneur, the manager or the Fortune 500 officer – to develop, implement and maintain policies and procedures which foster positive employee relations. We believe that a successful marriage of an effective human resources program with an informed and well-trained operations team is the best way to avoid the costly litigation and organizing activity generated by poor employee morale.
When problems or complaints arise, our attorneys assist our clients in effecting operative solutions that minimize costs and maximize results. Where proactive, informal or non-litigious solutions are not possible, we offer our clients thorough and committed representation:
- Before the various federal administrative agencies, including the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and United States Department of Labor;
- Before various state administrative agencies, including the New York State Division of Human Rights, New York State Department of Labor; and the Office of the Attorney General;
- In state and federal courts; and
- Before arbitrators and mediators or in connection with other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
As a boutique firm, Kreitzman Mortensen & Borden has prided itself on providing quality representation and a wide array of legal services at reasonable rates – in part, because we are able to effectively fulfill our clients’ needs without over-staffing projects. As a result, despite our modest size, for the past two decades we have been privileged to represent clients as diverse as local “Mom ‘n Pop” companies, regional industrial associations, and numerous Fortune 500 corporations.
Our goal is not to replace or supplant local, general or in-house counsel, but simply to provide Employers and their attorney(s) with specialized legal advice and practical "know-how", at competitive rates, to achieve success.
