Sean Becker, the head of the Employment, Labor and OSHA practice, brings a unique perspective to his work advising clients on day-to-day employment issues and transaction-related employment matters: As a veteran employment litigator, he can identify and navigate potential liabilities that might otherwise go unnoticed. It's a skill that has proved invaluable as Sean has managed a variety of sensitive employment-related matters and managed the labor and employment aspects of hundreds of acquisitions, divestitures and other transactions.
In his more than two decades of practice, Sean has also developed longstanding relationships with private equity clients and companies that rely on his counsel on issues such as non-competition and non-solicitation matters, including the structuring of restrictive covenant regimes, and the defense and pursuit of non-competition and unfair competition-related claims. He regularly negotiates and drafts executive employment agreements, severance agreements, and other employment-related contracts.
In addition, Sean has continued his work as a litigator, representing a variety of employers and their affiliated entities or sponsors in disputes across the country relating to employment contracts, class actions, ERISA, and wage-related claims. No matter what the challenge, Sean is committed to implementing approaches that provide effective outcomes for his clients.
