Boston attorneys Bret Cohen, Robert Sheridan, Steven Joseph, and Matthew Brown authored a chapter, “Law and Practice,” in the 2019 Regional Employment Global Practice guide for Chambers & Partners.  The chapter provides easily accessible information on navigating employment law issues in Massachusetts. The chapter is divided into sections where the authors provide insights and analysis on a number of employment law topics including the current socio-economic, political and legal climate; the nature and import of the employer-employee relationship; the interviewing and hiring process; the terms of the employment relationship; termination of the employment relationship; employment disputes and employee claims, dispute resolution forums and relief; and extraterritorial application of the law.

His practice covers litigation of trade secrets and employment related claims, as well as drafting and enforcement of non-compete, confidentiality, and other employment-related agreements throughout the United states. Robert Sheridan’s practice encompasses a variety of litigation matters, with an emphasis on litigation and counseling on federal and state labor and employment issues.  Steven Joseph focuses his practice on white collar defense & government investigations, and helps companies and individuals navigate conflicts in the modern enforcement, regulatory, and business environments.
